Welcome to the Fannin County, GA CERT website! 

We have a very active group of volunteers who meet every month to plan, prepare and train for disaster response.  We are actively recruiting new members who want to learn how to protect themselves, their families and their neighbors in the event of an emergency.  We conduct training for new members quarterly.


Our Mission

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area 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 neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
