Hays County CERT is a county-wide volunteer organization with four geographically-based teams: Buda/Kyle, Dripping Springs, San Marcos and Wimberley. Each member of the organization is assigned a team based on their location of residence but is not limited to that area alone. Once a call is received from dispatch for Hays County CERT, any volunteer can respond regardless of their team's base location. 


Teams are in place to promote leadership throughout the organization, ensure constant communication through designated points of contact and it also lets our members know who is the closest within their community to reach out for help if a crisis should arise. Hays County CERT promotes the well-being and safety of each individual's family above all else, and our members know they can count on each other to be properly trained and prepared for anything if and when their community calls on them.
