Rockwall Volunteer Fire Department

Interest Form
In 2005, the Rockwall Fire Department developed a CERT program to promote a partnering effort between emergency services and the people they serve. In every emergency, quick response from a trained person is essential. When disaster strikes, emergency services are quickly overwhelmed and have limited capabilities, leaving families and neighborhoods to support and care for themselves until emergency services can arrive. In major disaster, this can take anywhere from a few hours to several days. The goal of CERT is to provide basic response training that individuals can use in their own home, neighborhood, and work place. The volunteer members of Rockwall CERT come from various neighborhoods, community organizations, and workplaces in the City of Rockwall and surrounding areas, making our community more resilient during disasters. CERT members are also called upon during major disasters, structure fires, and wide area searches to operate under the direction of emergency services if more manpower is needed.
