What do you do with your fitness? Would you like to get involved in the community? CERT is a great way to give back and also put your fitness to the test. It's also a great stepping stone towards other volunteer opportunities such as Search and Rescue. Even if you don't want to volunteer, the training is FREE and could someday save you or yours. From the CERT webpage:

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
