Community Emergency Response Team

The purpose of the Rocky Hill Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is to assist Rocky Hill Emergency Management and first responder agencies in disaster, crisis and emergency response and promote safety education, emergency and disaster preparedness in our community.

  1. What is CERT?

CERT is an acronym for Community Emergency Response Team. This team is a volunteer team that can assist Rocky Hill when large scale events occur in our community. Examples are natural disasters such as tornadoes, hurricanes or any significant storms that may require the town to act based on the outcome of the storm. Other aid may be provided in the form of public service such as COVID distribution centers, food share, concerts on the green and several other town sponsored events that require volunteer services to town and some of its departments. Throughout the year, CERT members will be assisting in other capacities in non-operational events in our town library, senior center, ride share and park and rec environments helping aid the community in our volunteer needs. We operate under the supervision of the Emergency Management Director and support a mission of: “To assist Rocky Hill Emergency Management and first responder agencies in disaster, crisis and emergency response and promote safety education, emergency and disaster preparedness in our community”.
