Dodge County Emergency Response Team [DCERT] is a not-for-profit traffic incident management organization.
DCERT is contracted with Dodge County Sheriff's Office, along with many other local municipal police, fire, and EMS agencies to assist in handling traffic control, scene security, and access control.
DCERT was founded in 1982 and has been providing emergency traffic control free of charge ever since.
Our organization is made up of dedicated members who volunteer their time and money in order to provide these services to their community. We respond to various different emergencies throughout Dodge County including motor vehicle collisions, structure fires, explosions, bomb threats, barricaded subjects, active shooters, and missing persons to name a few.
DCERT also assists with local events such as parades, run/walks, fireworks, motorcycle runs, and more. Some of our biggest events include Dodge County Fair, Nation of Patriots Tour, City of Columbus Fireworks, and the Dodge County Antique Power Show.
