Resilience for all Communities


To promote resiliency through preparedness, response, and recovery by
incorporating best practices and sharing resources to empower trained
volunteers in our communities.

"The National CERT Association (NCA) will help emergency managers harness the power of volunteers before, during and after disasters. NCA will increase the awareness of CERT capabilities through communication, cooperation, and education. FEMA looks forward to partnering with the NCA to help build a culture of preparedness throughout the nation.

– Dr. Natalie Enclade, Ex-Director

The NCA has partnered with Merit to use their technology platform, free to use, to track NCA membership and activity.

Merit has been a support of CERT for several years now, offering their platform as a free tool for all CERT programs. Merit has sponsored the 2018 National CERT Conference in Florida as well as the two state conferences in both Florida and California in 2019.
