CERT volunteers play a critical role in providing support to fire, police and paramedic services at emergency scenes and disaster sites. They also work proactively to participate in community preparedness planning and provide public education outreach.

All CERT members receive a total of 24 hours of initial training. Applicants need not have previous public safety experience. All interested residents are encouraged to apply – CERT volunteers represent a wide range of ages, backgrounds and professions.

In addition to completing the CERT volunteer application, successful candidates must live or work in Plymouth, have a high school degree or equivalent, be at least 21 years old, have a valid Minnesota driver’s license and pass a criminal background check.
