CERT Liability Guide
"Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) programs support post-disaster response and help ensure that CERT response efforts are as safe and effective as possible. CERT program activities can create risk and adverse consequences; however, perceptions about liability may be a larger barrier for CERT formation, activities and partnerships than is justified by reality. The purpose of this Guide is to offer information and suggested techniques to help CERT programs overcome this barrier. Those who will benefit from this information include local CERT programs, their sponsoring government agencies and legal advisors and CERT members themselves."
