To join our team you must be 18 years old and complete a membership application.  A background and driving history check is performed on all prospective members. 


At a minimum, we require  four FEMA online courses be completed, and certificates of completion be provided within 30 days of approval for membership.  These courses are free, self-paced, online, and revolve around the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and Incident Command System (ICS) used nationally. Courses typically take less than 2 hours each to complete.





To be able to be deployed for disaster and emergency management events, you must also have completed the G-317 Basic CERT Course. This is 24 hours of classroom training plus an exercise to provide the knowledge and skills citizen volunteers need to effectively serve their community. Skills to prepare for local emergencies and respond to them are the focus.  We offer this course twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Multiple organizations offer the same course throughout the year all over Texas.
