Citizens Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Waterford Township intends to form a Citizens Emergency Response Team (CERT) – a group of adults who live and/or work in our community and have a passion for community service.  This group of volunteers will be trained to assist various Township departments, including Police and Fire, when our capacity to provide services may be strained due to extreme weather, natural disaster, or even planned Township events.
CERT members may be called upon to provide assistance with downed wires, traffic control, and light search and rescue to name a few.  Recruitment begins now with interviews to follow soon after. We will select participants throughout 2021 and start training in 2022.  If you are active, self-motivated, and want to serve, this is the group for you.  The CERT will work under the direction of the Waterford Township Emergency Management Coordinator.  If you are interested, please visit www.waterfordmi.gov/CERT, then contact EMC Brendan Brosnan at 248-618-6199.
