Private nonprofits, including houses of worship and other faith-based organizations, in Crockett, Fayette, Haywood, Lauderdale, Shelby, Tipton and Weakley counties may be
eligible for FEMA Public Assistance to help cover the cost of emergency protective
measures, debris removal and repair or replacement of facilities damaged during the
February 3-4, 2022, severe winter storm. The program is funded by FEMA and
administered through the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA).
Learn how to prepare for the unexpected by taking the FREE Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training from the Shelby County Office of Preparedness. CERT students learn life-saving skills; gain a new confidence that they will know what do before, during and after a disaster. And be able to assist family, neighbors, and co-workers until the professional rescuers arrive on the scene.
CERT training is presented through lectures, videos, and hands-on exercises to teach students what to do before, during, and after a disaster.
