CAMPUS EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM: CERT
The Campus Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates staff and faculty about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their campus and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their campus following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
