The East Lincoln County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) serves the communities of Siletz, Toledo, Logsden, and Eddyville. Siletz Valley Fire District, Toledo Fire Department, and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians have partnered to sponsor this CERT program.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

CERT volunteers receive free training on disaster preparedness and response skills so they can support their communities and emergency responders in case of disaster. Often times, immediately after a disaster, community members rely on each other for help before emergency personnel arrive at the scene. CERT volunteers are trained to provide skilled assistance in these instances to help not only their loved ones and local community, but emergency responders as well.

CERT volunteers are trained on:

  • First Aid
  • Disaster Preparedness
  • Light Search & Rescue
  • Team Organization
  • Disaster Drill & Simulation
  • Fire Safety & Suppression

and many other topics.
