Emergency Response

The DVC Safety Committee oversees the administration, DVC managers assign and coordinate staff, and district police provide training for a district-wide Safety Monitor Program. This program provides designated district and campus employees with training and equipment so they may assist during evacuations, shelter-in-place situations, or other emergencies.

For more information about the Safety Committee, please contact: cknox@dvc.edu

Many of the Safety Monitors have taken extra steps to become CERT-trained.

The Contra Costa Community College District Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a team of  specially-trained volunteer staff members who support emergency services at all district campuses and facilities. CERT members undergo training to better serve the college and neighboring communities in case of disaster.
