Mahwah Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is an all-volunteer organization made up of residents who are trained to support professional first responders (police, fire, EMTs, et al.) in all types of emergency situations while serving the community in other ways during non-emergency times. CERT is part of a national program and is organized locally under the auspices of the Mahwah Office of Emergency Management.
