Directed by Susan Norman of the Xerox Center and the School of Education, operated by professors, teachers, pre-service teachers and college students and with additional support from SUNY Geneseo, the camp will operate from July 15-July 26, 2013. Students will be trained to be prepared for, to respond to and to mitigate various disasters using the Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) protocol. Students who complete this 2-week long Homeland Security protocol program will earn their CERT and may be called on to help in real emergencies. The training is real; the scenerios are fiction. The camp will focus on how to deal with a viral outbreak that result in people acting out as Zombies.
