Apply to volunteer with the city of Mankato’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). CERT volunteers provide critical assistance needed in case of an emergency, such as a flood or tornado, and assist during large city events. CERT members play a critical role in emergency situations because they are trained to assist others in their neighborhood and workplace.

Training includes 20 hours of classroom time and hands-on training. Topics covered include emergency preparedness, fire suppression and search and rescue, to name a few. Sessions begin March 30 through April 27. Once trained, time commitment is based on events as they arise.

To apply, complete an application and deliver to:

City of Mankato
Public Safety Center
701 South Front Street
Mankato, MN 56001

For more information, contact public safety staff at 507-387-8735.
