Welcome to American Fork CERT!

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.



Money Magazine named American Fork one of the top 100 places to live in the United States. (2005)

The city takes its name from the American Fork River.  It was formerly called Lake City.  The streams running into the lake were known as forks.  The first settlers on the American Fork creek took the name of the stream for the settlement.  American Fork was settled by Mormon pioneers in the summer of 1850 and was incorporated in 1853.

Hope to have CERT class available soon.
