The Driving Force

The event that occurred on September 11, 2001 will never be forgotten; also not for-gotten is how the spirit of America was awakened that day and citizens came forth to volunteer their services. President George W. Bush harnessed this spirit of volunteerism with the Citizen Corps program. CERT is a part of the Citizen Corps Program.

This administration is dedicated to the safety and security of the citizens and the State of New Jersey, and proudly supports the Citizen Corps initiative. As a part of this effort, we are calling upon New Jersey State Employees to be prepared in times of emergency by becoming a CERT member.
