Community Emergency Response Team
The Broome County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is looking for new members
from Binghamton University. CERT is a group of civilians who are trained to become
better prepared to mitigate and respond to hazards and emergencies in their communities.
CERT members are trained in traffic control and highway safety, wilderness search
and rescue, CPR and First Aid, basics of community emergency preparedness and disaster
response, and shelter operations. The CERT responds to floods, severe storms, and
other natural disasters, and also to large fairs and events to provide logistical
support to professional emergency responders. Joining this team is a large but rewarding
time commitment. Because of the on-going obligation after training, this opportunity
is available to sophomores ONLY.
