Emergency Preparedness

The Combined Regional Emergency Services Training (CREST) center at Oakland Community College offers a wide variety of Emergency Preparedness Training in Partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI), the Partnership for Environmental Technology Education (PETE) and the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) programs.

Training is offered to emergency services personnel and civilians through both agencies and consortiums.  Participants that successfully complete this valuable training are able to identify local threats and hazards, evaluate whether to evacuate or shelter in place, and provide disaster recovery information to their community.
