What is Citizen Corps?

Citizen Corps was created to help coordinate volunteer activities that will make our communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to any emergency situation.

It provides opportunities for people to participate in a range of measures to make their families, their homes, and their communities safer from the threats of crime, terrorism, and disasters of all kinds.

alt The Cobb County Citizen Corps is an advisory council formed to act as a liason between the community and the Cobb County Emergency Management Agency. The members recommend policy and procedure for active citizen corps programs within Cobb County including Cobb Emergency Response Team (CERT) and the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC).

Mission Statement:

The mission of Citizen Corps is to harness the power of every individual through education, training, and volunteer service to make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to the threats of terrorism, crime, public health issues, and disasters of all kinds.
