CERT: Starting a Team

Effective May 29, 2008, the University of Washington no longer supports the UW CERT program. All CERT training, program support and disaster activations are officially discontinued as of this date. Click here for a copy of the official CERT program closure memo. All information on the UWEM CERT webpage is provided as historical and for-information-only purposes. Thank you for your support of this program during our 2003-2008 pilot process.

The UW Emergency Management is now soliciting volunteers from other parts of the Seattle campus for future CERT teams. Interested departments, units and teams must be committed to the CERT principles, and provide a minimum of 6-8 staff members per building to receive this FREE training. For more information on CERT training requirements and commitments, see:

CERT Training Requirements and Commitments

To place your team on the list of future trainings or if you have other general questions, please contact UW CERT Program Manager at (206) 897-CERT, or disaster@u.washington.edu
