CERTs are formed by members of a neighborhood or workplace, who want to be better prepared for the hazards that threaten their communities.

Initially, CERT programs were developed to assist communities in taking care of themselves in the aftermath of a major disaster when first responders are overwhelmed or unable to respond because of communication or transportation difficulties. As the CERT concept has taken hold across the country, however, CERTs have become much more than originally envisioned. CERTs have proven themselves to be an active and vital part of their communities’ preparedness and response capability.

When deployed appropriately, CERTs can complement and enhance first-response capability in neighborhoods and workplaces by ensuring the safety of themselves and their families working outward to the neighborhood or office and beyond until first responders arrive. CERTs can then assist first-response personnel as directed.

The next CERT class in Sammamish will begin on September 9th and continue until November 1st on Tuesday nights. Classes are 2 ½ hours each week for a total of 20 hours and start at 6:30 PM.

Location: Fire Station #82, 1851 228th Ave NE.

The fee is $35.00
