Dodge County Emergency Response Team (DCERT) was founded in 1982 as a local, non-profit, volunteer group. Our mission is to serve the citizens and visitors of Dodge County, Wisconsin, by providing assistance to public safety agencies. DCERT provides traffic control and safety patrol services for emergency incidents and special events such as parades, runs and walks, and other community events. The team serves dozens of scheduled events and numerous other situations such as traffic accidents, severe weather events and major fires.
Traffic Incident Management, or TIM, a collaborative effort of public safety and transportation agencies, consists of a planned and coordinated multi-disciplinary process to detect, respond to, and clear traffic incidents so that traffic flow may be restored as safely and quickly as possible. Effective TIM reduces the duration and impacts of traffic incidents and improves the safety of motorists, crash victims and emergency responders.
DCERT operates a Traffic Incident Management unit in partnership with the Dodge County Sheriff's Department. The TIM unit provides on scene assistance for emergency responders at major traffic incidents through establishment of barrier zones, traffic buffers and tapers. This service is provided free of charge and is supported through donations and fund raising events. Please contact us if you would like to support our mission.
