State, Territory, and FEMA CERT Coordinators

Each FEMA Region has a preparedness division that supports the CERT program

at a regional level. FEMA CERT Coordinators are usually a Community Preparedness

Officer and/or a Regional Preparedness Liaison. Local CERT programs should work

with their State or Territory CERT Coordinators first and should contact their FEMA

CERT Coordinator if their State or Territory CERT Coordinator is not available or

cannot assist. State and Territory CERT Coordinators are encouraged to contact their

FEMA CERT Coordinator as needed. Here is a list of the FEMA Regional CERT
