The Springfield-Greene County Office of Emergency Management hosts CERT training courses to members of the public interested in taking care of themselves and their families during disasters and/or becoming a CERT volunteer. During training, participants will learn the basic disaster preparedness skills both in the classroom and in the field. Course curriculum includes:

  • Fire Safety
  • Light search and rescue
  • Disaster Psychology
  • Team organization
  • Disaster medical operations

Training concludes with class participants responding to a simulated disaster to practice the skills they have learned.

Our next CERT Basic Academy class is a hybrid-style course with some virtual lessons combined with seated classes and practical exercises at the Public Safety Center in Springfield. Our next class is April 13th and 20th 2024. To Register for class click here: April 2024 Greene County CERT Basic Academy
