Your First Responders / Why First Responders Have Nightmares ... / Get Involved

According to the National Fire Protection Association, 71 percent of firefighters in the United States are volunteers. This section of the website is dedicated to the thousands of volunteers — firefighters and others — throughout West Virginia, and particularly in the Mid-Ohio Valley Region, who are dedicated to Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response. Click here for a list of more than 40 non-firefighter volunteer preparedness and response organizations within 50 miles of Wood County.

Your First Responders

In this section we provide information about the “First Responder” community in the Mid-Ohio Valley: who they are, where they are, how to contact them, and their activities.

Mid-Ohio Valley Regional CERT

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.
