Welcome to Woodside - Portola Valley
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)


The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills so they may assist their neighbors in the event of an emergency.  Skills include: fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.


New Program & New Standard Operating Procedures (SOP)
