UCLA Office of Emergency Management offers three programs to get involved.
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
This training teaches individuals how to be better prepared for hazards that may affect their communities and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT classes are offered quarterly to staff, faculty & students. Once graduated, CERT members can join the response efforts on campus or in their neighborhood during disasters.
Area, Floor & Facility Warden Training
As part of our Warden Program, we recruit, train, and coordinate Area, Floor & Facility Wardens in all buildings across campus. Their responsibility is to lead emergency evacuations, account for their assigned personnel, and conduct an initial damage assessment of their area. This training will illustrate the roles and responsibilities of all wardens and provide them with the skills and resources necessary when responding to emergencies. This training is for faculty and staff who participate in the Warden Program.
Campus Emergency Operations Group (CEOG) Training
Sitting in the Emergency Operations Center, the CEOG is responsible for facilitating the overall emergency response coordination on campus: information gathering, coordination, and operations. This series of training is designed for eligible UCLA staff & faculty.
