Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
SERV SD Registration Instructions
Go to http://serv.sd.gov and click on ‘New Member Sign-up’
Step 1: Selecting Your Group
You will need to start by selecting your volunteer group. Select the box next to “CERT- Yankton County” to register as member of the Yankton County Community Emergency Response Team. If you are a ‘licensed or certified health professional’ (physician, nurse, behavioral health specialist, etc.) check this box, otherwise click on one of the other non-medical volunteer groups (POD or SNS group).
Step 2: Create Your Account
When selecting your user id and password, 1). The user id should be a combination of your initial of your first name and your entire last name. If a duplicate id already exists, then use your first name and last name, and 2). The password should be six characters or numerals, or a combination thereof.
Step 3: Completing the Registration Process
You will be asked to provide contact information as well as specific information pertaining to the group you have selected to join, including information necessary to validate your credentials and to meet federal standards. When you register you will enter information on the best way to contact you. If a deployment is required, this is the information that the system will use to contact you. Therefore, please be sure that the information you give is accurate and up-to-date. Any time you have any changes in that information, please log on and update the information.
Step 4: Approval Process
The final step is the approval process; your application will either be manually reviewed. The approval process may take several days to complete; once your application status has changed you will receive an e-mail notification. Once approved, you are registered with the Yankton CERT. You will also be able to log on and update your information at any time. Leaders of the Yankton County CERT will contact you with training and deployment opportunities.
