Danbury has a strong team who is well prepared in the event of an emergency. Staff members are well informed of emergency response plans. Our team is very welcoming to volunteers. We continue to recruit and train individuals to join the volunteer force.
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT): The CERT volunteers are trained to prepare for disasters their community may face by learning to safely respond to hazards and organize basic disaster response. The City of Danbury hosts CERT training programs throughout the year. All participants must be over 18 years of age, and we highly recommend those who are interested complete the following courses prior to attending the training: FEMA IS-315 and FEMA IS-317.
