As FEMA’s PS-Prep program comes closer to being a reality in our country, for our companies and for our citizens, it is important to revisit the significant role that the Citizen’s Corps has and will play to ensure a more secure and safer homeland by being better prepared, trained and involved in the support of first responders.

Many of our readers as individuals and as members of preparedness teams in organizations embrace the concept of personal responsibility to be prepared; to get training in first aid and emergency skills; and to volunteer to support local emergency responders, disaster relief, and community safety.
