The Department of Public Safety & Security is offering a Campus Community Emergency Response Team (CCERT) training session on March 3 and 4. The training consists of two days of classroom and hands-on training, followed by a half day emergency exercise scheduled for March 6.

Some of the topics covered include disaster preparedness, fire safety, disaster medical triage and treatment, and light search and rescue. The goal is to have team members in each building on campus, with primary responsibilities being coordination of building evacuations and sheltering. Teams have already been started or established in 74 main campus buildings.

More information about the program can be found at this website. While the class is available for registration through Fast-Train, anyone interested in becoming a team member for their building should first get supervisor approval and also contact the Department of Public Safety & Security at (334) 844-8888 or to express their interest.
