who are we?...
The mission of Campbell CERT is to build teams of neighborhood volunteers who are trained, organized, equipped, and ready to respond to major emergencies.
Campbell CERT has teams of trained first responders, equipped and ready to help, should the need arise. In the event of an emergency, CERT members will be deployed by the Campbell Police Department to assist our neighbors throughout the City of Campbell.
CERT members are trained by the Santa Clara County Fire Department (SCCFD) using curriculum developed by the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA). The CERT program includes twenty-one hours of extensive classroom and hands-on training. Please visit our CERT Academy section for more information.
Campbell CERT members are allocated in nine active teams in the following neighborhoods: Campbell Village, Central Campbell, Downtown, Hacienda, Hamann Park, Pruneyard Dry Creek, San Tomas, San Tomas West, and Union Ave.
“The motto of CERT is to do the most good for the most people in the event of a disaster.”
