Who Are We?

The Menifee Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a network of dedicated community volunteers that have been FEMA trained to respond in the event of natural disaster or other type emergency.

What Are Our Goals?

The Menifee CERT goals are listed below.

  • To prepare and provide the security and protection of ourselves and our family during a local disaster.
  • To assist our immediate neighbors and our community in response to a disaster in a safe matter. 
  • To assess and help begin to stabilize the situation until emergency services arrive.
  • To connect and assist neighboring Community CERT Teams as applicable.
  • To train fellow citizens through classes and outreach in the community.

What Do We Do?

In addition to educating the public on emergency preparedness we are trained to setup and operate within the FEMA command structure. Just a few of the activities we may be called upon to perform include:
