Active shooter incidents are unpredictable and evolve quickly. In the midst of the chaos, citizens can play an integral role in mitigating the impacts of an active shooter incident. Shelby County Emergency Management and Homeland Security aims to enhance preparedness through a "whole community" approach by providing tools, and resources to help citizens prepare for and respond to an active shooter incident.
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.
