The Newport Police Department organized the first (Community Emergency Response Team) CERT in Carteret County in the summer of 2004. After receiving a $29,000 grant from the State of North Carolina Citizens Corps, NPD trained 40 CERT volunteers, purchased response equipment, and conducted additional trainings in 2005. Since 2005 CERT members have served as Red Cross Shelter Managers during hurricanes that have struck the Crystal Coast. Click here for more information on CERT.
