Response Agency Volunteer Support Committee

go to CERT site

CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference. Through training, citizens can manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.

go to FIRE CORPS site

The Fire Corps Program is a nationwide effort to bring citizens into local fire and emergency service departments to assist in non-operational roles, allowing firefighters and emergency medical responders to focus on critical, life-threatening situations. Through the use of citizen advocates, Fire Corps increases the capacity of volunteer, combination and career fire/EMS departments and creates a vital link between the fire and emergency services and citizens who want to make a difference in their community. Fire Corps offers numerous resources designed to assist departments in the implementation and maintenance of Fire Corps programs. Included in these resources are ideas for incorporating Fire Corps members into non-operational roles, tools enabling departments to retain and recruit citizen advocates, as well as access to a nationwide network of Fire Corps programs.

go to MED RESERVE site

The Jefferson County Medical Reserve Corps is comprised of county residents who are willing to help the area's public health sector if it becomes overburdened by an emergency. A wide array of health professionals as well as individuals without medical experience are encouraged to join.

go to USAonWATCH site

USAonwatch through Neighborhood Watch empowers citizens in our communities with the opportunity to volunteer to work toward the saftey of our homeland.

Go to VIPS site

The Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) Program is a Citizen Corps program. The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) manages and implements the VIPS Program in partnership with and on behalf of the White House Office of the USA Freedom Corps and the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice. The program's goal is to enhance the capacity of state and local law enforcement to utilize volunteers. The Volunteers in Police Service website is the foundation of this national initiative to help state and local law enforcement agencies. The Web site serves as a gateway to information for law enforcement agencies and citizens interested in law enforcement volunteer programs.
