Welcome to the City of Allen Park Community Emergency Response Team.

In 2013 Chief Egan, then Lieuteant Egan, joined forces with Cpl. Rolando Hinojosa of the Melvindale Police Department, which already has a large and very active CERT team, to start the Allen Park & Melvindale CERT

You can join the team at

The coordinators for the Allen Park CERT program are School Resource Officer Mike Bacile and Road Patrol Officers Chris Arnoldy & Allie Michaels. They all work in conjunction with the Melvindale Police Department's CERT Coordinator Officer John Ginther to oversee both city's CERT operations.

The Allen Park Resident CERT Team Leaders are Steve Randazzo and Mike Flanagan. Mike is our cert web pages coordinator.
The Melvindale Resident CERT Team Leaders are Gary Stover and Jim Kulozyk. Jim oversees our radio and vehicle operations.

The CERT Program educates residents 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.

CERT members also support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
