The University of Texas at Dallas founded its CERT in 2004, and the team has existed continuously since then. Currently, we are the oldest CERT in the UT system and one of the oldest campus CERTs in Texas. In this session, UTD’s Emergency Manager and CERT President/Trainer will discuss our history and our plans for the future. We will address starting a campus CERT, recruitment strategies, training and continuing education strategies, retention strategies, CERT’s role in the campus community and CERT’s function in campus Emergency Management.
