The City of Bellevue Office of Emergency Management offers volunteer opportunities through our Education and Outreach programs.
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
In a disaster, Bellevue’s police officers and firefighters will be flooded with requests for help, and it may take some time for them to reach your neighborhood. CERT training aims to provide residents with skills to assist their communities during disasters when police or firefighters are unavailable.
CERT incorporates disaster preparedness, fire safety and utility controls, disaster medical operations, light search and rescue operations, organization, disaster psychology, and terrorism.
