Welcome to WPV-CERT


CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team. And WPV-CERT is the CERT organization within the Woodside Fire Protection District (WFPD). If you are looking for a way to be helpful in the response to an emergency situation, the CERT program is the place to get involved. In the CERT Basic Training class, you will learn useful skills that could save your neighbors' lives and property. And you will learn how to work together with other trained CERTs to mount the strongest possible response to all of the chaos that happens when a disaster turns a normal day into a nightmare. No prior skills or training are required.


You can learn more about the CERT program at its page on

You can join the CERT team by taking CERT Basic Training at any certified local program. WPV-CERT offers CERT Basic Training several times every year.
