Help Your Community in an Emergency

CERT  .jpg

What is CERT?
When disasters happen, normal emergency response systems are quickly overwhelmed. CERT members can give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects.


Who are CERT Team Members?
You!  Residents from Buena Park, Cypress, La Palma, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach and Westminster volunteers combine to create the West County CER.  These members provide effective emergency response through their combined strength in numbers. Using joint training and two emergency response trailers, our West County CERT volunteers work as a single cohesive unit.


La Palma Needs You!
The City of La Palma needs additional volunteers to participate as members of the West Orange County CERT Team. We are recruiting now for the next training academy, which is slated for April, 2017. The training occurs on two consecutive weekends. For more information or to sign up for the upcoming academy, call Ed Fleming at the La Palma Police Department at 714-690-3385 or visit:
