Members of Fairfax County CERT completed WMATA training and became members of the Metro Citizen Corps.

The program consisted of three modules:

  • Module I – Program Orientation / Terrorist Activity Recognition and Reaction Training
  • Module II – Passenger Train Familiarization at the Metro rail yard
  • Module III – MetroRail Familiarization / Tunnel Walk (Actually entering the MetroRail tunnel system during operating hours)

Thank you to the Metro Transit Police Department and Department of Emergency Management for conducting this training.
