The Cobb Emergency Management Agency provides countywide emergency management program leadership, continuity, and direction to enable Cobb County and its partners to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the impact of natural, manmade, or technological disasters upon its people or property.
The Cobb County Emergency Management is responsible for coordinating all activities necessary to protect Cobb’s residents from natural, technological and manmade disasters and other emergencies that threaten the County.
Cassie Mazloom is the director of Cobb EMA and reports to the director of Public Safety. Underneath his leadership, there are six positions that make up the department: Deputy Director, Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Coordinator, Volunteer Programs Coordinator, Planner, Administrative Specialist and Finance Specialist.
Cobb EMA performs a monthly siren test every first Wednesday of the month at noon, unless weather conditions are unfavorable. If that is the case, then a second attempt will occur on the following Thursday at noon. A silent test will be conducted should inclement weather occur on both days.
