The vision of the Westshore Regional CERT (WSC) is to make our communities safer, stronger and better prepared to be both disaster resistant and disaster resilient. To further that vision and our mission, the WSC has launched a new website, www.westshorecert.org.

Originally and graciously hosted by the City of Westlake, the new site was created by and will be hosted by team member Michael Kinder and his company, M&K Kinder Design LLC. Much of the design and content was developed by a committee of team members over the last year.

Serving Bay Village, Fairview Park, Lakewood, North Olmsted, Rocky River and Westlake, the team’s goal is to provide an up-to-date local website that provides disaster preparedness tips, information and links, and encourages personal responsibility with regard to preparedness, prevention and mitigation. Check it out! Bookmark it! Use it! Pass it on!

The Westshore Regional CERT (WSC) is a (as of April 2011) 240 member nonprofit volunteer team under the Westshore Council of Governments. The national CERT program seeks to educate residents about disasters common or possible in their area through free 20-hour disaster preparedness training. US citizens over 18 who pass a background check are eligible for team membership. The WSC supplements emergency responders when needs outweigh resources.
