Mission Statement

The Manhattan Beach Community Emergency Response Team Association (MBCERTA) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization created to enhance disaster preparedness and emergency response for the citizens of Manhattan Beach. We accomplish this through participation in community awareness events, various training programs, and drills and providing volunteer support to the Manhattan Beach Fire and Police Departments when a disaster strikes or upon activation by the Manhattan Beach Fire or Police Departments in the event of an emergency.


MBCERT aims to:

  • Educate and train the public and government sectors in disaster preparedness.

  • Research, evaluate and disseminate disaster information.

  • Develop, train and maintain a network of Community Emergency Response Teams.
