The FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Division and the National CERT Office are excited to introduce the new CERT E-Brief, replacing the CERT Newsletter as the platform for sharing ideas, stories, and other information with the national CERT community. This new format will make it easier for readers to access stories about CERT programs and volunteers throughout the country and other useful information. CERT members will be able to view the E-Brief across several new digital platforms, including e-mail apps for smart phones and tablets. We will be posting the link to the current E-Briefs on our site.
