WPV-CERT Community Emergency Response Team
Serving the communities of
Woodside - Portola Valley - Emerald hills - Ladera - Los Trancos - Skyline - Vista Verde
The Woodside Portola Valley Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) supports our community’s ability to respond and recover after a disaster event.
CERT-trained volunteers learn how to prepare themselves and their families for disasters and how to assist others in the neighborhood or workplace immediately following an event when emergency responders may not be available to help.
Join us for Basic CERT Skills Training in 2024
Taking the CERT Basic skills training can help you, your family, and your community know how to respond when disasters strike.
In the Spring:
Thursday Nights from February 8th to March 21st (6:30 - 9:30 pm)
Skills Day on Saturday, March 23rd or Sunday 24th (day TBD)
Tuesday Nights from September 10th to October 22nd (6:30 - 9:30 pm)

WPV-CERT is dedicated to creating a team of volunteer responders to help until professional responders are available. We also have another program in our area, WPV-Ready.Org, which focuses on helping every resident and household to be prepared before a disaster strikes.
