logoimage1 The mission of East Lake Community Emergency Response Team, as volunteers in and around the Palm Harbor Florida area, is to provide mitigation, prepardness, response, and recovery disaster support for the public citizens.

-- The greatest good for the greatest number
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
East Lake CERT enjoys the support of East Lake Fire District and works to support the continuing effort to keep the residence of East Lake safe. This is done by providing education and awareness about how the members of the communities should support themselves in the event of a disaster by filling the gap before professional responders arrive which could be longer than 72 hours. This is accomplished by the volunteer members of this team who feel that giving back is the first step to saving lives.
East Lake CERT is always looking for new members to come and join us. There are many different ways to help from lite jobs of paperwork to more strenuous jobs doing triage and treatment and search and rescue. If this is something that you are interested in doing, be sure to visit the training section of this site to learn how you can get registered for our next basic training academy. This training is free and can help you and your family to fill the gap and insure your safety during a disaster. Come join us…
