Looking to make a difference in the world? It all starts by volunteering in your community!

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program provides an opportunity for Cobb County citizens to gain knowledge about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their areas and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhoods or workplaces following events when professional responders are not immediately available to help.

To join Cobb County CERT, you must:
• be over the age of 16

• live, work or worship in Cobb County

• pass a Criminal History background check
