Description
 

The community emergency response teams objective is to activate and assist the community during a crisis often before first responders. Once those professionals arrive, CERT members are trained to assist them to be as effective in helping their communities as possible.

Your qualified CERT group needs to be visible during an emergency. This vest helps identify you as a trained volunteer to both the public and to professionals. One common job that CERT members often do is direct traffic after an accident, weather event, terrorist incident, natural or manmade disasters or road failure. CERT members will have to direct the flow of traffic, provide directions and assistance, communicate with their team leaders and the chain of command as well as keep the road orderly. As we have all experienced, traffic incidents can become confusing, chaotic and dangerous so having a skilled CERT group on hand can make the world of difference directly after an emergency event. The reflective vest will help you stand out to the drivers and draw attention to your directions.

CERT members will also assist in crowd management where standing out is important. Sometime these events will be planned, like parades, festivals, community events, or drills. Other times, CERT groups will help with evacuating their communities, setting up and manning barricades, distributing food, water or supplies, managing shelters, coordinating volunteers or managing walking wounded or unhurt survivors. In all these situations it is important that everyone knows who you are and your role – a CERT mesh vest with reflective stripe assigns you to the CERT group and keeps your team looking skilled.

Once you have your CERT vest, keep it on hand as you will never know when you will be needed to assist in an emergency. For example when travelling to work you might come across a car crash where you will need to alert on-coming traffic of the danger. Wearing a CERT reflective vest will make this task safer for you as your will be more visible, as well as letting the public and emergency responders know who you are.
