Campus Community Emergency Response Team (C-CERT)

Campus Community Emergency Response Team (C-CERT)

The Basic C-CERT training program consists of 24 hours of basic training. 
People who go through C-CERT training have a better understanding of the potential threats to their home, workplace and community and can take the right steps to lessen the effects of dangerous situations. If a disaster happens that overwhelms local response capability, C-CERT members can apply the training learned in the classroom and during exercises to give critical support to their family, loved ones, neighbors or associates in their immediate area until help arrives. When help does arrive, C-CERTs provide useful information to responders and support their efforts, as directed, at the disaster site.

C-CERT members can also assist with non-emergency projects that improve the safety of the community. C-CERTs have been used to distribute and/or install smoke alarms, replace smoke alarm batteries in the home of elderly, distribute disaster education material, provide services at special events, such as parades, sporting events, concerts and more.
