Welcome

This website is to support the Bellevue, Washington Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). If you have completed the CERT Basic Course and live or work in Bellevue, you may request membership on BellevueCERT.org by clicking the Register link.

To get started with emergency preparedness …

If you’re ready to move beyond the basics …

CERT is an in-depth Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) training program to train community member volunteers in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations. In a major disaster with wide-spread impacts, professional first responders may not be able to respond to all areas of the city for several days. CERT trained volunteers can help fill this gap by providing response to their family and neighbors.

Because of the pandemic, the CERT Basic course is not being held in the Bellevue area. Until the course is offered again, you can take this two-hour online training which will give you an introduction to the CERT program, and is a prerequisite for the CERT Basic course.
