What our community has to say
Their assistance went above my expectations, I was at the scene of a terrible accident, where 2 men fell of the back of a bakkie with a trampoline, I immediately called it in to the local CPF but it seemed like my whatsapp did not go through, so I called CERT-SA who sent ambulances etc immediately!- Michelle Audie

Make a Donation
Community Emergency Response Team is a registered public benefit organisation as well as a non profit organisation, we are therefore reliant on Supporters, donations, Sponsorships and partnerships to keep providing our services to the community. As CERT is registered with SARS, as a Public Beneficiary Organization, Tax Certificates are issued for all donations made. (PBO No. 930053425)
We solely rely on donations from the community and funding from corporate organisations. Without the support from the community we would not be able to offer our service and so we are continually in search of financial support. Community Emergency Response Team provides Medical, Fire, Rescue, Trauma support and animal rescue services free of charge to the community. The greatest challenge presented to CERT is having to rely on limited resources and that we are dependent on donation from the community and support from corporate entities.
There are several great opportunities for CERT to grow our operations and develop our different division into self-sustainable specialized services. We aim to grow our fleet and establish each of our different divisions to better serve the community by providing a broad spectrum, specialized emergency services.
