Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
A group of Fanwood residents realized the essential need for a trained emergency response team to supplement the first responders and assist our Police, Fire and EMS departments, responsible to Fanwood's Office of Emergency Management (OEM). In 2004 we started the official FEMA national Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training as part of the Citizen Corps initiative. In February 2005 the Mayor and Borough Council of Fanwood officially recognized the CERT, by a council resolution.
Through instructive and hands-on sessions, the volunteers receive training in life saving skills with emphasis on decision making, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. The Fanwood CERT also organizes home safety courses for the residents of Fanwood (and those who work in Fanwood) and maintains a website (www.fanwoodcert.org) that provides community-wide alerts (i.e., Winter Storm alerts, recent Water Alerts) and safety information. The Fanwood CERT leaders will also be the representatives of the American Red Cross for Disaster Services in Fanwood and the surrounding communities. Financially, the Fanwood CERT operates within the Fanwood Community Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) organization.
