Train to become part of Teen CERT

WPS is starting a WHS Teen CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) program this October. Teen CERT is a training program that prepares teens to help themselves,  family, and  school community in the event of a disaster.  Students trained in Teen CERT will have the skills to assist emergency responders, save lives, and protect property.  The role of a Teen CERT volunteer is to help others until trained emergency personnel arrive.

Classes will start October 22 from 6pm until 8pm here at WHS.  See this letter for more information and email Mike Turano, District Safety Officer to sign-up.  There is an informational meeting October 8, 6pm at Babcock Hall Auditorium.  Final sign-up is by October 10th @ noon.
