  • Is CERT-G a militia?

    No,  CERT-G does not meet the definition of a militia under either federal or state codes.  We have members of all ages, sexes, and physical ability or disability.  We do not bar membership to anyone based on age or physical criterion.  We also are not purposed to defend the general communities we live in: we are purposed to defend ourselves, our families, and each other.

    The US federal government defines a militia in 10 U.S. Code § 311 - Militia: Composition and Classes 
    A) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodies males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of females of the United States who are members of the National Guard.

    and the State of Mississippi defines a militia in § 33-5-1 Composition of the Militia
    The militia of the State of Mississippi shall consist of all able-bodied citizens of the state between the ages of seventeen (17) and sixty-two (62) years, who are not exempt by law of this state or of the United States, together with all other able-bodied persons who shall voluntarily enlist or accept commission, appointment or assignment to duty therein, subject to classifications as may be hereinafter prescribed.  The militia shall be divided into three (3) classes: The National Guard, the Mississippi State Guard, and the unorganized militia.  The unorganized militia shall consist of all persons liable to service in the militia, but not members of the National Guard or the Mississippi State Guard.

  • What is Readiness?

    Readiness is a term that we use to define the actions of 1) remaining vigilant to threats, 2) having enough supplies on hand to prevent becoming a casualty, and 3) operating under a set of pre-planned and practiced procedures to respond to a diverse set of scenarios which, without proper prior planning, would create personal, family, and/or group duress.

  • What is CERT-G getting ready for?

    CERT-G recommends member readiness for a vast set of circumstances.  Some members have one or more significant concerns for varying scenarios, but as general rule we recommend for members to prepare for multiple scenarios ranging from simple temporary electrical grid interruptions to long term civil unrest and/or societal collapse.

  • Where is CERT-G?

    CERT-G is organized in the State of Mississippi.  We have a set of bylaws and we are an Incorporated Non-Profit organization.  Our model is designed to be expanded upon by the chartership of new chapters.
