Campus Community Emergency Response Team

Campus Community Emergency Response Team Logo

The Campus Community Emergency Response Team (C-CERT) program educates the campus community about disaster preparedness and trains volunteers in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. In their role, trained C-CERT members can also safely provide initial aid, shelter support, crowd control, and evacuation. The role of C-CERT volunteers is critical because, in the event of a major disaster, area emergency responders may be delayed or need additional support to address the entirety of a disaster on campus. 

Volunteers are provided adequate training gear and receive quality training in the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Incident Command System. This training allows C-CERT volunteers the ability to assist in giving critical support to others in the event of a campus disaster.

Mission Statement

C-CERT is designed to serve and safeguard Lane Community College through efficient and effective volunteer service, which helps protect life and property, ensuring "the greatest good for the greatest number." When called upon, C-CERT volunteers provide basic care, stabilization, and information within the campus community until emergency responders can arrive on the scene. Upon request, C-CERT volunteers will remain on scene to assist emergency responders as long as necessary. During non-emergency situations, C-CERT focuses on public education and awareness to help increase emergency preparedness on campus.
