The mission of the Upland Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is to help Upland’s residents to be more prepared to respond to multi-hazard incidents by forming neighborhood response teams that can plan, respond, mitigate, and recover from emergency incidents until Upland’s Emergency Services can respond.  Upland CERT will form a response organization that the City of Upland, Upland Fire and Police Departments can rely on, when activated, to perform response tasks that allow the Emergency Services personnel to respond to higher priority tasks.  Upland CERT will plan and deliver emergency preparedness education and community outreach programs.

In addition, Upland CERT is available to assist City agencies with non-emergency programs and services.  Upland CERT has provided trained personnel to assist with the Amgen Tour of California bike race, the annual Fourth of July celebration at Upland High School, the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Upland and the Fire Department Open House and Preparedness Fair.
