Community Preparedness and Disaster Response through C.E.R.T

Mike Wright – September 1, 2020

CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) training teaches people basic skills in disaster response. Our primary goal is education of community members to be safe and also helpful to their communities during a major event. This could be flooding, wildfire, earthquakes, tsunami or a man-made disaster. Learn how to help save lives and stay safe.

Mike Wright first came to visit Coos Bay in 2010 and immediately realized that he wanted to live in this beautiful area. He discovered the CERT program 6 years ago and attended the training. Having moved here from Kansas he understood the need for preparedness, CERT not only became his hobby, but a passion as well.  Mike became a CERT instructor 18 months later and since that time he has helped train over 275 individuals here in Coos County.  He am currently the Chairperson for SWOPSA (Southwest Oregon Public Safety Association), a volunteer for Coos County Search and Rescue and a licensed Ham radio operator.
