Volunteer Opportunities

The City of Hazel Park values the many dedicated volunteers who help to make our community a great place to live, work and raise a family. There are many ways to get involved, from joining a civic or faith-based organization to serving on city boards and commissions. You can even start your own group. It's a great way to meet your neighbors, make some new friends and improve our city for all.

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.
