Ideally, first responders would have the ability to arrive on scene of an emergency the second 911 is dialed. The reality is that responders can be delayed for a multitude of reasons. One of our goals is to give our communities the knowledge and skills needed to endure an emergency or disaster while we’re “on the way”.
Preparedness refers to a set of actions that are taken as precautionary measures in the face of potential emergencies. Our Public Education Program focuses on the preparedness of both the individual and the community as a whole by offering courses covering a variety of valuable skills. Our mission is simple: to empower a capable citizenry through edification and training to complement professional responders in the mitigation of emergencies and disasters.
