THE NW DISTRICT COUNCIL
The Northwest District Council is an organization of
vibrant neighborhood groups working hard to keep this district a great
place to work, play, visit, and live. The efforts of our active local
neighborhood councils make living here the best it can be, ensuring neighborhood
schools, libraries, parks, roads, utilities, and other amenities are maintained
and enhanced for the health, safety, and enjoyment of all. The NW District
Council works with other Districts, the City of Seattle, and state and
regional entities to make life better for everyone. For more information

EMERGENCY RESPONSE TRAINING
After a major disaster, emergency services people rely on will be overwhelmed
and unable to meet the increased demand. Community Emergency Response
Team (CERT) Training is a series of classes to prepare people to take
action immediately after a disaster. The training is a combination of
skills based classes that will teach participants about Fire Suppression,
Utility Control, Light Search and Rescue and Disaster First Aid, in addition
to basic tenants of Emergency Preparedness and Emergency Response. For
