The Emergency Response Planning Group, part of the campus-wide Emergency Preparedness Planning Committee, will present the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training program. Open to all campus employees, this program is free and administered by the Department of Homeland Security and helps train people to be better prepared to respond to emergencies in their respective communities and at work. When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community.

A participant manual will be provided at the first session and a certificate of completion will be presented prior to the Disaster Simulation at the last session.
