"Thank you once again for an excellent CERT training last weekend. The response has been great.  I have had several individual conversations with the CERT members and have heard nothing but positive feedback.  The best part is that this is their team."

- Glenn Yorks, Emergency Manager, Nooksack Tribe, Oct 13, 2010

As part of its Mission, NWTEMC oversees a Regional tribal CERT team and Conducts CERT trainings for the Tribes of the Northwest. In order to do this NWTEMC has received grants from Dept Homeland Security and WA DOH in order to conduct trainings, buy CERT materials and manage the logistics of overseeing its CERT program for 3 States.

The 2009 WA DOH CERT grant allowed for the funding of  5 CERT classes for Washington State Tribes, including a CERT Train-the-Trainer class as well as the purchase of 9 Regional CERT trailers with starter CERT supplies and equipment to fill the Trailers.

 The NWTEMC received additional funds from the WA DOH in 2010 to buy more CERT manuals, training kits and conduct classes.

 The NWTEMC and WA DOH also customized the CERT Participant Manual for this project. Download the CERT Participant Manual

Lynda and Del,
On behalf of Ferry County Citizens Corps Council and and members of the Ferry County CERT, I want to thank you for allowing us to participate in the CERT classroom training last week. You both demonstrated great care and confidence in conducting the training and I also wish to extend our appreciation to Rick, Denny and Jim in sharing their expertise. You have a great team of instructors.
I am now looking forward to attending the Train the Trainer class in Everett, WA next week. I offer my assistance in any way in the future to help in any way I can.
By the way, after the four Ferry County SAR members went home Thursday, fresh from your Disaster Exercise, we were deployed on the Ferry County Disaster Drill at the airport and both the WSP IC and the Ferry County Under Sheriff and DEM commented on the professionalism of the SAR unit in supporting the EMS, Fire Department and Law Enforcement officials, particularly in our ICS performance. The Under Sheriff even said that he would be proud and happy to have SAR - CERT help on any accident he was called on in the future. I'll give you both credit for getting us prepared for that.
