Cobb County’s Emergency Management Agency is ready to train the next Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members.

Cobb EMA  will offer 24 hours of FREE training designed to prepare individuals to be ready for possible disasters. Once they complete training, Cobb EMA will include the new CERT members in future opportunities to help the community.

The training happens on three consecutive Saturdays from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day.  Dates with remaining availability include:

             September 9, 16, & 23

             October 14, 21, & 28

             November 4, 11, & 18

Each Saturday is a different topic; potential CERT members must complete all three classes. Attendees who cannot make the three consecutive classes will have the opportunity to finish later.
