EMU Campus Community Emergency Response Team
Each year, many communities are rocked by severe weather, such as tornadoes, floods or flash floods, winter storms, or man-made disasters. The damage caused by disasters affect everyone.
The Campus Community Emergency Response Team (C-CERT) program at Eastern Michigan University helps train people to be better prepared to respond to emergency situations on campus and within their communities. When disaster strikes, C-CERT members can give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. C-CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the campus community.
C-CERT members are trained to take care of themselves and then help others in their communities within the first 72 hours after a disaster strikes.
The purpose of C-CERT training is to provide citizens with the basic skills required to handle their own needs and then be able to respond in their communities in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.
Training is offered on a regular schedule and is completely free and open to students, staff, faculty and community members. Please check the schedule for a listing of upcoming basic training classes. If you're interested, please contact email@example.com and we'll contact you with more information.
