CERT - Emergency Prep

Sep 14th, 28th, and Oct 12th

8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a FREE training that is offered to help you protect yourself, your family, your neighbors and your neighborhood in an emergency situation. CERT is a practical approach to emergency and disaster situations where people may initially be on their own. While people will respond to others in need without the training, one goal of the CERT program is to help you do so safely without placing yourself in unnecessary danger.

After you have the training you are encouraged (not mandatory) to join a CERT Team composed of dedicated volunteers just like you. CERT members will not self-deploy to incidents. But, will only deploy when requested by the Hau'ula Community Association Community Communications Center (CCC). Take the training and learn more about how you can help yourself, your family and your community.

Neighborhood Block

Captain Program

In case of a disaster, the Block Captain’s first responsibility is to his/her safety and the safety of his/her family and home. Only if there is time, the Block Captain’s role is to initiate pre-arranged procedures within their neighborhood, including checking on neighbors, especially those with special needs and disseminating information received from the Hau'ula Community Association Community Communications Center (CCC). The Block Captain is responsible for gathering information about the residents on their block and providing a summary to the CCC. This information will be communicated to first responders and CERT Teams as needed.
