WeHo ReCERT is a network of Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) trainees and other residents in and around West Hollywood who are trained to do basic first aid, medical triage, light search and rescue, and emergency preparedness. We will deploy early on to large scale disasters like earthquakes in our local community when emergency services cannot respond to all 911 calls. CERT does not replace fire or emergency medical services, but rather acts to assist our families and neighbors until emergency services can more fully respond.
We keep abreast of and encourage local CERT activities, including basic training and refresher courses. We also participate in educating our community about disaster preparedness. We encourage interested residents to contact us and join our community-based efforts!
