2017 Collage

Kauai CERT would like to thank all the CERT members who participated in this year’s annual refresher at the Kaua’i Emergency Management Agency (KEMA) facility! The skills practiced during this year’s refresher focused on triage, splinting & bandaging, communications, traffic/crowd management, fire extinguisher training, and a special presentation by the team at KEMA.

Special “thank yous” go out to instructors: Lance Dettle, Kaeo Kinoshita, Andrew Oda, Tim Stokesbary, Tim Terrazas, Tad Miura, Lloyd Gardner, Liam Cooney, the Sparky fire trailer instructors, and Chelsie Sakai from KEMA.  Additionally, CERT would like to thank all the CERT team leaders, Gordon Tamura who handled the event’s logistics, and last but not least CERT coordinators John Cornell and Jason Poloa.

CERT = Community Emergency Response Team

FREE "CERT"  basic 24 hour trainings are being offered throughout the Island of Kauai during 2016. It is our goal to have Community Emergency Response Teams trained in every neighborhood. For more information or to register for the County CERT program contact Firefighter I John Cornell or Justin Kinoshita at kfdcert@kauai.gov or click on the link in the Register for CERT Classes section.

Additional information on the National "CERT" program may be found on the Citizen Corps' CERT website located at: http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/ .

Mission Statement

The Kauai CERT program trains citizens to be prepared for disasters of any kind, and to take care of themselves, family, friends, and neighbors when professional emergency responders cannot respond.  The CERT program establishes volunteer teams to assist professional responders during major emergencies, provides emergency management resources, and provide opportunities and projects that improve Kauai's disaster resilience.
