The City of Wylie and Wylie Fire-Rescue our proud to have the opportunity to work with dedicated citizens in our community who are willing to give of their time to assist City of Wylie personnel and other members of the community in times of need. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
If you are interested in being an important asset during crisis situations, please contact the Wylie Fire-Rescue Fire Prevention / Community Risk Reduction Division.
