Be Ready Herriman, the city’s emergency preparedness committee, meets monthly to receive training and address city emergency response organization. Please sign up for email notifications of upcoming meetings, training, drills and emergency response efforts.
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. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
CERT training includes both an online training and classroom training provided by UFA or any other agency. Please print your certificated after completing the online training and present it to your classroom instructor. When both classroom instruction and online training are complete, please contact Herriman City.
