Mission Statement

To lessen the impact of disasters on our Hillsboro community through preparedness and training.

Description

Hillsboro CERT teaches you to organize your neighborhood to get through the first 72 hours of a disaster, when professional responders might be overwhelmed with other calls for service.

Hillsboro CERT is an 8-week class, and you will learn about disaster preparedness, fire suppression, disaster medicine, light search & rescue, disaster psychology, and team organization; and the training culminates in a simulated disaster where you put all your new skills into practice.

Hillsboro CERT also offers monthly follow-on training on various related topics, as well as an annual refresher exercise. We also participate in various civic activities during the year, including the Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace, the Washington Square Emergency Services Fair, the Oregon International Airshow, and the NW ERT Rodeo.
