Get Prepared!

CERT (Community Emergency Response Team), will be holding monthly meetings regarding disaster preparedness in the northwest Eugene area. Although these meetings will be geared towards the Northwest Quadrant (NWQ), we understand there are many people outside that area looking for ways to better their own neighborhoods. If you are interested in seeing what we are all about, please feel free to join us. Although CERT is the platform for these meetings, there are many members of our community that have much to offer that are not CERT trained. Anyone interested in disaster preparedness is welcome to join. The goal is to become more educated and better prepared. For more information or ways to get involved - Email: The Eugene Northwest District Lead at certnorthwesteugene@gmail.com.Group meets the second Saturday of every month at Emerald Park Community Center, Room 2.
