Why join NBCERT?
NBCERT provides an excellent opportunity for the citizens of New Braunfels to play an important role in helping safeguard, prepare for and respond to major emergencies and disasters.
If a disastrous event overwhelms or delays the City’s professional responders, NBCERT members can be called upon to assist others by applying their training. Their skills can assist in saving property and lives until additional help arrives and then they can continue to assist the professionals in a variety of ways.
In a disaster people want to help but many are turned away because of the time and resources it takes to train or to determine what skills a volunteer has to offer. NBCERT is an avenue for people to be involved in the process and help protect the community, as well as their own family members.
