Webster University Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference.

The Department of Public Safety will be providing Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training on the following Tuesdays: June 25, July 2 and July 9, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All three classes will be needed to achieve certification.

The Webster University CERT is a volunteer program.  Members will be able to assist the Webster University Department of Public Safety and Health Services, Webster Groves Police and Fire in the time of need.

The training is a 20-hour course in Disaster Preparedness, Fire Safety, Disaster Medical Operations, Light Search and Rescue Operations, CERT Organizations, Disaster Psychology, Terrorism and CERT, and a course overview with a Disaster Simulation.

Webster University CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety and doing the greatest good for the greatest number.
