Integrating Community Emergency Response Teams (A-CERTs) at Airports
TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 95: Integrating Community Emergency Response Teams at Airports (A-CERTs) provides guidance and tools designed to help organize and operate a citizen volunteer program to assist airport staff in emergency events or disasters.
The report, produced as a three part set, consists of the following:
• Part 1, What is a CERT and How Do I Use It?
, explains what an community emergency response team (CERT) program is and how it can be used in the airport environment.
• Part 2, Basic Training Instructor Guide
, includes a detailed curriculum designed to train volunteers to potentially assist at an airport during emergency events or disasters.
• Part 3, Basic Training Student Guide
, is based on the instructors guide and is a resource for students as well as a takeaway from the training.
Also produced as part of ACRP Report 95 are customizable PowerPoint slides
—for use by the instructor during training—and a video
that can be used to educate the community and solicit volunteers.
