of personal and community preparedness through training opportunities, media outlets

National Citizen Corps Mission
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.
Volunteer Reception Center (VRC)
The VRC has several functions some of which include initial interview of the volunteer both in person and by phone, data collection and basic training. The CCC is seeking volunteers who would be willing to staff the VRC when called upon to open. Several persons are needed to rotate through to cover multiple posts (registration of volunteers, assigning volunteers to specific locations based on skills, ect.) and the anticipation that the VRC may be open for several days or weeks. No special skills are required to volunteer at the VRC.
