Geographic Organization

CERT is organized into three Districts which roughly correspond to the Districts of the three Fire Stations in Culver City. Each District is managed by a District Manager. Each District is further divided into Neighborhood Emergency Response Teams (NERTs). Each NERT covers a residential neighborhood or complex. Each NERT is managed by a NERT Coordinator. 

There are also three Business Emergency Response Teams (BERTs) in the city.
