About Us

History of CERT

The City of Eugene and City of Springfield are working together to build a culture of preparedness in our communities. Increasing our overall disaster resilience is the responsibility of every community member. By providing training and resources to our community members, we are working toward one goal—overall disaster preparedness.  The Eugene-Springfield CERT Program is just one fine example of our combined efforts.

About the CERT Program

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, 

CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
