CERT logo

A CERT Dedicated Partner Award will be presented to the Friends for the Community Foundation at a Town Hall meeting March 28, 7:00 p.m. in the City of Fairview Park Council Chambers.

The Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization created by Cuyahoga County District 1 Representative Dave Greenspan, seeks to support, promote, and enhance the quality of life, public safety initiatives, programs, and services within the Westshore communities. Since the foundation’s inception in 2011, they have hosted the Public Safety Charity Softball Tournament to recognize the district’s safety forces and to benefit the Westshore Regional and Olmsted Community Emergency Response Teams. The funds raised by this tournament help the Westshore Regional CERT provide free FEMA CERT 20-hours disaster preparedness courses for all Westshore residents and maintain training and equipment that allows the team to be prepared for any contingency.

“The Ohio Emergency Management Agency CERT Dedicated Partner Award recognizes partners of local CERT programs for their invaluable support of the CERT program. With strong partnerships from both private and public entities, the CERT program can continue to grow and provide better service for their local jurisdiction” (Ohio Department of Public Safety). The Westshore Regional CERT sincerely thanks the Friends of the Community Foundation for their continued support and partnership.
