Our Purpose:

Many of your neighbors have joined the Woodlake CERT (Community Emergency Response Team).  The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.

The Woodlake CERT is headed up by Team Leader Phil Bendick. The Team members have all gone through the training program. We all hope that we never need to use our training in a disaster, but we are prepared just in case we have to. We are always looking for more volunteers, so if anyone is interested in joining the Woodlake CERT, please contact Phil @ pbeninnc@gmail.com.

The Woodlake CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) maintains a list of people who are willing and able to assist in case of a community wide emergency.  If you have any of the following items we would like to add you to our list of those people we could depend on to help us out in an emergency.

At this time we are putting together a list of equipment that can be used in case of emergency. If you have a chain saw, generator, or portable flood lights and you are willing to let us borrow them at the time of a disaster please let John know.

Please fill out the form below and email it to CERT Team Leader, Phil Bendick @ pbeninnc@gmail.com or call him at (910) 245-3668.

Also, if you have any special health need (such as being on oxygen) and you would like us to make note of your location, so that we can get the proper equipment to you in case of an emergency, please contact Phil.

Thank you so much for your support.  CERT Equipment Listing Document
