Major disasters can overwhelm first responders. Having a well informed and trained group of volunteers made up of citizens and neighbors will help get the first responders where they are needed most and ensure a safe homeland.
Here is how you can get involved
Volunteer - Get trained and volunteer with a Community Emergency Response Team, Medical Reserve Corps unit and/or other Citizen Corps Partner Program or Affiliate organization.
Connect and collaborate with your local emergency planning group, Citizen Corps Council or local emergency management agency.
Join or start a preparedness project that will teach others how to prepare for emergencies
