  1. I would like to sign up for CERT training. But can’t seem to find a number for Mr. Sidwell and I went by the station and the door was locked. Any help getting in contact with him?


    • Gary,

      Thanks for the reply. Have you tried the email from the flyer( Chief Sidwell has been responding within 24 hours to inquiries received there. He offices out of Station 3 at 1773 Westgreen Blvd. Katy, TX 77450 and is generally here during business hours unless there is an emergency.
