The Muskegon County Citizen Corps program is part of a national program under Homeland Security that helps communities coordinate volunteers to prepare for and respond to local emergencies.

Muskegon County Citizen Corps trains and engages volunteers to make communities safer, stronger, and                                                                      better  prepared to respond to emergencies and disasters of all kinds, including                                                                     threats of terrorism, natural disasters, crime, public health issues, etc.

                                                                        The support of Citizen Corps activities are especially important during                                                                                   major disasters when first responders may be initially overwhelmed.

                                                                               Citizen Corps activities are adapted to every community's needs and                                                                                     managed locally by a Citizen Corps Council .  


                                                                                     Citizen Corps encourage communities to engage every citizen in                                                                                           homeland security efforts.
