The Team will consist of resident volunteers who will join Malden fi rst responders and public safety offi cials in the event of an emergency or when additional assistance is needed to keep our city safe. This volunteer opportunity will enable more residents to get involved in helping their community. CERTs are part of a program created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that helps to educate people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster-response skills. CERT volunteers are required to complete a 20-hour training course that will prepare them to help their community in the event of a signifi - cant public safety emergency, such as a tornado or other disaster. Prospective CERT members must: • Be 18 years or older; • Complete and pass a CORI background check and preinterview with the Malden Emergency Management Team; and • Be willing to participate in 20 hours of prerequisite training to be a certifi ed CERT member. Upon completion of training, Malden CERT members will be called to participate in emergency response activations as well as periodic activations and training exercises. For more information or to apply, please contact the CERT Coordinator at CERT@ cityofmalden.org.
