Recently, 10 students and 10 staff members enrolled in Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training. CERT educates individuals about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their geographic area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT volunteers are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking an active role in emergency preparedness projects. The CERT certification training was provided over 21 hours during the university’s spring break.
