Kansas Adjutant General's Department
Citizen Corps

The mission of Citizen Corps is to harness the power of every individual through education, training, and volunteer service to make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to the threats of terrorism, crime, public health issues, and disasters of all kinds.

Citizen Corps Councils:
The Citizen Corps misison will be accomplished through a national network of state, local, and tribal Citizen Corps Councils.  These councils will build on community strengths to implement the Citizen Corp programs and will carry out a local strategy to have every American citizen participate through:

  • Personal responsibility: Developing a household preparedness plan and disaster supplies kit, observing home health and safety practices, implementing disaster mitigation measures, and participating in crime prevention and reporting.
  • Training: Taking classes in emergency preparedness, response capabilities, first aid, CPR, fire suppression, and search and rescue procedures.
  • Volunteer service: Engaging individuals in volunteer activities that support first responders, disaster relief groups, and community safety organizations. Everyone can do something to support local law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services, community public health efforts, and the four stages of emergency management: prevention, mitigation, response and recovery efforts.
