Chartered by the Village of South Orange and working under the direction of our Office of Emergency Management, Police, Fire, or South Orange Rescue Squad, the South Orange Community Emergency Response Team is an entirely volunteer group that provides support to emergency first responders and the public. Areas of our response focus on:

  • Disaster preparedness
  • Light search and rescue
  • Medical triage
  • Disaster mental health
  • Emergency sheltering


CERT Volunteers also help out at community events and participate in emergency exercises. Our recruitment flyer can be found in the attached PDF below. You may use this to post information about SOCERT.
