The NCA was created in 2019 with the intent to strengthen the CERT program throughout the US and internationally. Working in concert with FEMA, the NCA will leverage the strength and experience of CERT programs nationwide to share guidance and best practices as well as build more robust communication channels so that CERT programs can connect with each other more efficiently.
Listos is a grass-roots disaster preparedness program that can be tailored to meet the individual needs of Spanish-speaking communities.
