Become a member of the GRU Campus Emergency Response Team (CERT)

In partnership with Richmond County Emergency Management, the office of Critical Events Preparedness & Response (CEPaR) will be hosting the first CERT training program here at GRU and GRHealth. Students, Faculty, Staff & Volunteers are encouraged to participate.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be given an Emergency Response Kit and will be prepared to assist their family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers in those crucial minutes and hours just after disaster strikes. As a member of the GRU CERT, you will be prepared to respond and assist throughout GRU and GRHealth.

The first course will begin on May 7, 2015 and will meet each Thursday thereafter from 6 to 9 pm through June 18, 2015, followed by an exercise to practice all that was learned. This course is being offered FREE OF CHARGE to all GRU / GRHealth Students, Faculty, Staff, & Volunteers. We will need between 25 and 30 folks to make this class work. If you are interested in attending this inaugural class, simply send an email to: CEPAR@gru.edu.
