CERT Program of Kirkland, WA

CERT ID Meeting

  • Wednesday, March 28, 2018
  • 7:00 PM
  • Kirkland City Hall


  • Someone who has graduated from the 8 week CERT training course who lives or works in the city of Kirkland.

The long-awaited CERT Identification Badges are soon to become a reality!

We have been working on this on a City and Regional level for several years.  The intention of having badges is so that law enforcement and other first responders can assume that a person with a badge has training and standing within their jurisdiction.

Everyone who has graduated from the CERT class, who is a Kirkland resident, or who works in Kirkland, is entitled to the Basic level badge.  Anyone who has further training and is willing to meet the higher requirements may have an Intermediate or Advanced level badge.   Information on the requirements for Intermediate and Advanced level badges will be distributed to all CERT Team Members via email.


Anyone who desires (and qualifies) for an ID Badge needs to attend the event, starting at 7:00 PM in the Peter Kirk room at Kirkland City Hall (123 5th Avenue). 


Basic level CERTs will confirm their contact information and have their photo taken. They will attend a presentation by the Emergency Manager about the CERT Charter and Neighborhood Team plan. At that point they may leave.

Intermediate and Advanced level CERTs will stay for a volunteer orientation and filling out more forms. They will need to bring their training certificates, cards, or other proof of training with them. IS 200 is a new requirement and must be completed before March 28th to apply for a higher level badge.  The online training can be accessed via the FEMA website: https://training.fema.gov/is/courseoverview.aspx?code=IS-200.b. 

The orientation and forms completion part of the meeting will take approximately 2 hours.  Intermediate and Advanced level CERTs should plan on staying until about 9 PM.


You must register in advance for this class so we can have your materials ready.
