CERT Training

CERT stands for "Community Emergency Response Team." CERT is a FEMA-based program offering advanced training and practice in emergency response techniques. Once you have taken the CERT Basic class, you can take advanced classes in subjects like Incident Command, and Firefighter Rehabilitation. In an emergency, our sister organization, WFPD-CERT, runs CERT training and manages teams and equipment throughout our district. In an emergency, you will see these green-vest-clad volunteers responding to "next level" issues during the time that our normal responders, police, fire and ambulance services, are overwhelmed.
