Citizens who go through Monroe County’s Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) and become part of the volunteer Monroe Emergency Reserve Corps also can obtain early re-entry placards. To volunteer for this program, go to or click below.

The first training for CERT instructors is June 16 and 17. The class is full, with 40 people signed up. Once the instructors receive their certification, they will begin setting up CERT training for volunteers in locations throughout the Keys. That information will be forthcoming.
