Welcome to the Depoe Bay Fire District CERT Program!
CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference. Through training, citizens can manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.
CERT is a program of the US Citizen Corps which is coordinated nationally by the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Our agency sponsor is the Depoe Bay Fire District, www.DepoeBayFire.com. The District consists of a thirteen square mile area of the Central Oregon Coastline including the coastal communities of Siletz Keys, Salishan, Gleneden Beach, Lincoln Beach, Boiler Bay, Depoe Bay, Miroco, and Otter Rock. We are so grateful for their support. Check out their Facebook page and Twitter page too!
