Welcome to North County CERT

The North County Community Emergency Response Team is a group of volunteers local to the Stanwood area who have organized to train and be educated in how to help our families, neighbors, and communities in the event of a disaster.

This FEMA-backed training course is one of the few federal programs created under Citizen Corps which provides training to the general public to assist in recovery after a disaster. The program gives volunteers a basic training in assessing building safety after a natural disaster, search and rescue, medical triage and first-aid to help our first responders have a head-start in the event of a large scale situation.

How do I get involved?

Join us for our monthly info and training sessions and let us know if you’re interested in becoming a team member.

As of April 2018, in coordination with North County Fire Department / EMS, the Stanwood area has its first official team of 13 volunteers from Warm Beach, Warm Beach Camp, and Kayak Point. We have grown to 32 active volunteers and look forward to additional Basic CERT Training classes as the social distancing restrictions are lifted.

As restrictions are lifted we will continue offering monthly training seminars on various CERT topics – CERT trained or not. They will typically last an hour starting promptly at the given time and ending 60 minutes later unless otherwise planned.

These seminars are free of charge and open to the public, please join us!
