logo, Greater Tampa CERT The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a program that trains citizens how to be prepared for and respond to emergencies that may arise in their community. In the event of a major disaster such as a hurricane, emergency services personnel can initially become overwhelmed leaving citizens on their own. CERT training enables citizens to help themselves and their neighbors by applying basic response and organizational skills during an emergency. CERT members can also serve as first responders to an emergency until professional emergency services arrive.
logo, Fundacion Familia Sana The first priority of Fundación Familia Sana (Healthy Family Foundation) in the United States is to fill the gap in health disparities within the Spanish speaking community. Initially we began in the city of Tampa, and have quickly expanded outward into Hillsborough County. With the help of volunteer public health, nursing and medical students from the University of South Florida we have made a difference in the lives of the Hispanic community.
logo, Self Reliance For more than 30 years Self Reliance Center for Independent Living, a non-profit organization has provided services, free of charge, to children and adults with disabilities residing in Hillsborough County. Services include providing new and recycled durable medical equipment, home modifications, independent living skills training, assistive devices such as flashing door bell signalers and baby cry monitors for people who are deaf and a loan program for power wheelchairs and scooters. Currently we have several unique programs such as an accessible computer lab for the hearing-impaired, vision-impaired and those with physical limitations. We provide advocacy and information referrals to both consumers and other agencies.
logo - US Coast Guard Auxiliary The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is the civilian, uniformed volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard, as well as the lead volunteer force in the Department of Homeland Security. The 31,000 volunteer members (men and women) donate time in support of the Coast Guard and Maritime Domain Awareness missions. Our members come from all walks of life and all ages over 17 (there is no upper age limit). Special training is provided free of charge so that we may serve as functional members of Team Coast Guard. Auxiliarists assist the Coast Guard in non-law enforcement programs such as public education, vessel safety checks, safety patrols, search and rescue, marine environmental protection and now we also help with Homeland Security.
