The public safety office is offering its Campus Community Emergency Response Team (CCERT) training to faculty, staff, and students starting Wednesday, January 20. The 8-week course teaches basic emergency response and preparedness steps to make yourself, your family, and your neighborhood a safer place after a disaster. Volunteers are trained by the University’s CCERT trainers and Portland Fire and Rescue to provide emergency disaster assistance on campus and in the immediate surrounding neighborhood. Public Safety offers CCERT classes at no cost to people who live or work at the University of Portland. UP CCERT program participants attend a total of 24 hours of hands-on training.
