Welcome to SB C-CERT
The Campus Community Emergency Response Team (C-CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in disaster response skills, such as fire safety and suppression, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, C-CERT members can assist others on their campus or neighboring community following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. C-CERT members also support community emergency response by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects.
Stony Brook C-CERT is a dedicated group of students, faculty and staff trained in emergency response and management. Many of our members are also EMTs, Paramedics, firefighters and law enforcement officers.
Stony Brook University C-CERT is a collaboration between the Office of Emergency Management and Division of Campus Residences (Student Affairs). Stony Brook C-CERT is also an official Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and State Emergency Management Office (SEMO) registered CERT program.
