The mission of Solera CERT is to empower residents through education, training, and volunteer service to be better prepared and self-resilient.
We are bringing survivability to our community households after a disaster.
We are educating and preparing Solera residents for household and local risks.
Train the cadre of CERT volunteers to augment first responders as a resource multiplier.
We integrate training from traditional and nontraditional resources to ensure maximum preparedness options.
Our Solera CERT program includes a network of city, county,
state, and private disaster relief resources, as well as local emergency
management services. Solera CERT asks
you to embrace the personal responsibility to be prepared; to get training in
first aid and emergency skills; and to volunteer support for local emergency
responders, disaster relief organizations, and community safety advocates.

Someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as 5 minutes. That’s why bleeding control—keeping the blood inside the body.
