The Citizen Corps mission is to bring community and government leaders together to coordinate the involvement of community members in emergency preparedness, planning, mitigation, response, and recovery.
The Ohio Emergency Management Agency collaborates with the Ohio Community Service Council (OCSC) as a member of the Ohio Citizen Corps Council in delivering Citizen Corps programs to Ohio.
More information on the Ohio Citizen Corps Council can be found on OCSC's website at www.serveohio.org. Volunteers can also register on the website and find out more information on volunteer opportunities. Questions regarding programs can be directed to Gloria Davis or Rusty Groselle (firstname.lastname@example.org)
There are five key programs under the auspices of Citizen Corps: Community Emergency Response Teams, Volunteers in Police Service, Neighborhood Watch Program, Medical Reserve Corps and Fire Corps. The Terrorism Awareness & Prevention program is an additional outreach initiative unique to the State of Ohio. These Citizen Corps programs form the basis, the foundation by which communities may structure additional initiatives based on need.
