Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
CERT in action!CERT Training
The City of Eugene sponsors CERT training to citizens within the Eugene/Springfield metropolitan area. CERT trains citizens to be prepared to respond to emergency situations within their communities. Trained CERT members are able to give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members may also help with non-emergency projects that improve the safety of a community.

CERT courses consist of a series of eight classes, which focus on disaster preparedness, disaster fire suppression, basic disaster medical operations, and light search and rescue operations. Each course concludes with a mock-disaster drill, which tests the participants training. The CERT course is taught by Fire Fighters and Paramedics, as well as, volunteers and first responders who have completed a CERT Train-the-Trainer course, conducted by Oregon Emergency Management.
