The Roswell Fire Department is accepting applications from residents who are interested in becoming part of the City's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), a volunteer group of trained community members who will be integrated into emergency response efforts in their area.

The CERT program educates participants about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations. This training will allow CERT members to assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available for help. CERT members will also be encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

Training for the CERT program will consist of eight classes, most of which will be held at Roswell Fire Station 7 at 8025 Holcomb Bridge Road. Classes will take place on Thursdays from 7:00-9:30 p.m. beginning February 21, 2019. Class size is limited to 16 Roswell residents. Participants must be at least 18 years of age.

Residents who are interested in becoming a CERT member can find the application below or contact Lt. Ed Botts at ebotts@roswellgov.com. Please note only Roswell residents will be considered.
