Start a Council

Could your community benefit from volunteer leadership in disaster preparedness?

Could your community benefit from volunteer training in disaster response and preparedness?

If you answered yes to either of these two questions, there is a need for a Citizen Corps Council in your community.

Establishing a Citizen Corps Council in your community, city or region is not as difficult as it seems. With the proper preparation and adequate support from your local officials, you can start a program in your area that will be able to address your needs, whether they are preparedness, planning, or response related.
