Serving the communities of

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.
