Campus Community Emergency Response Team (C-CERT) members are staff, faculty and students.
They've attended twenty hours of classroom and hands-on training that included:
- Using a fire extinguisher, turning off gas/water/electricity
- Basic first aid, triage and setting up treatment areas
- Assessing buildings to determine possible structural damage and other hazards
- Search & Rescue of missing or trapped people
When campus disasters occur, C-CERT members, wearing lime green vests and dark green hard hats, will be seen at evacuation sites and patrolling the campus using their skills to help others.
