CERT is also able to provide emergency fire and rescue support to existing government and private emergency fire and rescue services. Our personnel and volunteers are equipped with fire and rescue, protective clothing, breathing apparatuses, and basic forcible entry hand tools and other equipment.
We respond to various types of emergency fire and rescue situations and provide lifesaving emergency rescue and fire support services in conjunction with local state and private emergency fire and rescue services. Our response units are dually equipped to provide emergency lighting, helicopter landing zone securing, scene safety/protection and other support on major accident or crime scenes.
serving our community
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. There are several ways you can make a donation to CERT, either by making an EFT, or through www.givengain.com or by signing up for a Monthly Debit Order.Make a Donation
