The Village of Lake Zurich - Citizens Corps - CERT is part of a regional team including the towns of Hawthorn Woods, Kildeer, Lake Zurich & Long Grove.
The CERT is a field based operational unit. The training covers personal preparedness followed by sessions on search and rescue, first aid and victim removal to name a few. This team is designed to aid emergency personnel in situations where emergency services are already stretched beyond initial capabilities.
The next CERT class will be in 2012. Contact Chief David Wheelock
