Volunteers Needed for Malden Community Emergency Response Team

Malden Settled 1640 Town 1649 City 1882

The City of Malden is in the process of forming a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). The Team will consist of resident volunteers who will join Malden first responders and public safety officials 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.

Community Emergency Response Teams are part of a program created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that help to educate people about disaster preparedness and train 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 significant 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 pre-interview with the Malden Emergency Management Team; and
  • Be willing to participate in 20 hours of prerequisite training to be a certified 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 our CERT Coordinator at CERT@cityofmalden.org.
