Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

A remarkable array of services helps make Sun City Center a safer, healthier and more enjoyable place to live. Most are provided by trained volunteers and are free of charge.  The Emergency Squad provides ambulance service to residents in time of need.  The Security Patrol keeps watch over our neighborhoods. Samaritan Services and SCC Ride offers transportation and support services. Those are but a few of the unexpected services you’ll enjoy here.  Our Newcomers Hospitality Program volunteers will be happy to tell you more.

The South County Communities – Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is designed to complement professional Fire and Police organizations in disaster situations where uniformed fire, rescue, and medical services are overwhelmed. CERT self-activates in disaster situations. CERT training & direction is provided by Hillsborough County Fire and Rescue. SCC CERT is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation.

Membership in CERT is open to all CA Members. All CERTmembers must pass CERT training classes sponsored by Hillsborough County Fire Rescue. There are no annual dues and participation is strictly voluntary.

All interested CA Members are invited to attend the meetings.  For more information please visit our website at
