About
The Conference


Come join us for the 2021 Nation CERT Conference and learn how we help emergency managers harness the power of volunteers before, during, and after disasters.

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the 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. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced.

We are inviting Creative Leaders to submit proposals for presentations for our upcoming 2020 CERT Conference. The conference theme is “Vision for the Future”.

We are looking for your insights and experience managing and leading CERT Teams, interesting case studies and impactful events involving CERT Teams as well as innovative ideas for the future and “out of the box thinking” programs.

If you think you have something great to talk about, tell us about it so we can consider your entry. Or if you know someone who has something great to talk about, nominate them.

At this conference, we expect practical sessions with tangible, Implement Today! takeaways.

We require every presentation to provide a list of at least 3 actionable takeaways that attendees can take back to their CERT Teams so they can take action and improve their organizations immediately.

We don’t want a session on “Constantly improving your CERT Team is Important in Today’s Landscape.” That’s not useful to attendees. We do want sessions like “10 Specific Ways You Can Make Your CERT Team Better today”
