CERT Program of Kirkland, WA


What is CERT?

Community Emergency Response Team training is a FEMA-based curriculum designed to teach adults of all ages and abilities how to help themselves, their families, and their neighbors during a disaster when police, fire, and medical services are overwhelmed.

The Kirkland CERT program offers the full 8-week CERT training course twice a year.  CERT graduates become members of their neighborhood's CERT team.  Ongoing training and skill refresher classes are offered frequently.  CERT team members are invited to participate in drills with other Kirkland Office of Emergency Management volunteer programs, like Kirkland Emergency Communications Team (amateur radio operators).

CERT leaders and instructors are available for public outreach engagements (like wellness fairs), and are happy to give disaster preparedness presentations to community groups and organizations.

It was filmed at Fire Station #26 during the Fall 2015 CERT class.  
One of our CERT students, Philip Bickford, with InFlight Imaging shot the video with his drone. 

Thanks, Philip, for the awesome video!
