The Woodlands CERT
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is part of every Village in The Woodlands. The CERT Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations.
Held at The Woodlands Emergency Training Center over an eight-week period, the Woodlands CERT course is taught by a team of expert first responders with a full-scale disaster simulation exercise conducted at graduation. Classes meet one night a week for three hours with most sessions involving practical exercises as well as classroom instruction.
