Midland Park has a trained Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) to augment the police, fire and EMS first responders. These trained and dedicated volunteers are ready to do such tasks as shelter operations, road closures, damage assessment and to work in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC). They are readily indentifiable by their green vests or orange windbreakers and all have identification displayed. CERT members also help at townwide events such as the Community Day and Memorial Day Parade.
