Emergency Preparedness

Community Emergency Response Team


Brandeis University is committed to campus safety as a method of promoting a positive, productive learning environment for all members of the campus community. 

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, allowing them to focus on more complex tasks.  CERT trains volunteers in basic disaster response skills, such as:

  • Fire Safety
  • Light Search & Rescue
  • Team Organization
  • Disaster Medical Operations

Other training will be made available to team members and portions of the training will be tailored to fit the Brandeis community.
