About This Ministry

Learn to be prepared for disasters. Join the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Graduates with CERT training may apply to participate with your local community team when crises arise.  Get equipped in basic disaster response skills such as fire suppression, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.


On our campus of approximately 1800 staff and students, the UofN-CERT team coordinates the response to emergency incidents such as earthquakes, fire or tsunami evacuations.  They also support the Kailua-Kona community and Hawaii County Civil Defense.
