West Point Fire

 

Welcome to the West Point Fire
Community Emergency Response Team!

During and following a major disaster first responders will be overwhelmed and may not be able to meet the high demand of emergency services such as search and rescue, medical services, and fire. In these situations, communities members rely on each other for help. Family members, neighbors, and fellow employees will try to help each other until professional services can arrive. Attending the CERT 20 hour training course will enable local residents to learn how to prepare themselves, their family, and their community for a disaster. This training will also show individuals how to safely respond in disaster situations, and how to organize in the aftermath of a disaster.

The Mission of the West Point Fire Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is to provide information that will save lives during extraordinary emergency events and hasten the resumption of normal operations during the recovery process.
