CERT, also known as Community Emergency Response Team, is a program that educates volunteers in disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, disaster medical operations, and basic first aid.
In September 2016, CERT held their 30th anniversary national conference in Southern California and we got to be among the vendors.
Thirty years is cause for celebration. Hundreds of people from across the country (and some international folks) attended the celebration and gained valuable knowledge they could take back and teach to their communities to become better prepared.
This is the face behind CERT. His name is Frank Borden. We had the pleasure of meeting this rockstar.
Frank is a humble, kind man with over 36 years of service with the Los Angeles City Fire Department and a list of accomplishments and awards a mile long. Frank… you are awesome. (Learn more about Frank here.)
With much appreciation for volunteers that give back to communities across the world, The Vest Guy offers EXCLUSIVE sales on CERT reflective safety gear. (Translation: CERT codes are ONLY valid on CERT gear. Anyone who tries to use CERT discounts for other products and will end up with cancelled orders.)
The Vest Guy offers CERT reflective products from basic/minimal frills up to pockets and features galore.
Basic CERT vest has reflective striping, adjustable sides, 2 D rings, and sewn on name tags. Bare bones and cost effective.
The CERT Vest 001 is a basic 2 pocket vest, slip pockets behind each pocket, upper and lower reflective striping, and customized removable name tags on velcro.
Yes, you read that right…… CUSTOMIZED name tags. Choose from a variety of colors and you can even use your logo.
If you are working within a smaller budget and like the ease of carrying a few items and keeping your hands free, the CERT reflective radio chest packis another option.
The CERT Commander Reflective Vest has a few more bells and whistles than the CERT 001.
The High Visibility CERT ANSI II Vest features 2 radio pockets, clear ID window, and 360 degree 2″ reflective.
These vests have dual adjustable sides that expand up to 8 inches on each side. Adjustable sides means you can use the same vest year round (even when you’re wearing bulkier clothing in cold months) or multiple people of varying sizes can share vests.
