Washington County is a place that features thriving communities. We believe a community thrives when people engage one another and work together. This is especially true when preparing for life’s most challenging circumstances.
In the context of preparing for disasters, there are many ways to connect with preparedness-minded people. Washington County proudly hosts Citizen Corps and affiliated programs which span a variety of preparedness topics.
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. Among others, Citizen Corps partner and affiliate programs include Amateur Radio Emergency Service, Community Emergency Response Team, Medical Reserve Corps, and Neighborhood Watch.
