Remember Me

Following a major disaster, first responders who provide fire and medical services will not be able to meet the demand for these services. Factors such as number of victims, communication failures, and road blockages will prevent people from accessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moment's notice through 911. People will have to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate lifesaving and life sustaining needs.

If we can predict that emergency services will not meet immediate needs following a major disaster, especially if there is no warning as in a tornado, and people will spontaneously volunteer, what can government do to prepare citizens for this eventuality?

  • Present citizens the facts about what to expect following a major disaster in terms of immediate services.
  • Give the message about their responsibility for mitigation and preparedness.
  • Train them in needed lifesaving skills with emphasis on decision making skills, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number.
  • Organize teams so that they are an extension of first responder services offering immediate help to victims until professional services arrive.

The Coral Springs CERT program is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number of people.  It is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where YOU, the citizens and leaders of Coral Springs, will be initially on your own and how your actions can make a difference.

Through training, YOU can be a vital resource in your community!
