The following programs provide excellent volunteer service opportunities:

  • Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) - A training program that prepares people in neighborhoods, the workplace, and schools to take a more active role in emergency management planning, and to prepare themselves and others for disasters.
  • Neighborhood Watch Program (NWP) - The NWP incorporates terrorism prevention and education into its existing crime prevention mission.
  • Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) - The MRC coordinates volunteer health professionals during large-scale emergencies to assist emergency response teams, provide care to victims with less serious injuries, and remove other burdens that inhibit the effectiveness of physicians and nurses in a major crisis.
