Community Emergency Response Teams

The Town Council has had preliminary discussions regarding a CERT program for the Town of Weddington. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area. The program is designed to train citizens in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

If you are a citizen of Weddington and would be interested in joining a CERT or would like to help in forming a CERT program in Weddington, please call the Town Hall at 704-846-2709 or send an email with your contact information to amy@townofweddington.com.

If there is enough interest in the community to start a CERT, we will notify all the interested citizens of the first meeting. This meeting will be an open forum, available to all citizens interested in learning more about the CERT initiatives for Weddington.

If you would like more information on the CERT program, please go to this government web site that is dedicated to CERT: http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/index.shtm
