New Citizen Corps Promotional Video!
This video introduces our Citizen Corps program and all the various
components of that program. You'll learn about the CERT Division as

We also highligh the CERT training program. This is a pre-requisite to
be a volunteer in any of the above programs. We'll describe what the training
is all about as well as walk you thru each module.
Volunteers are very important in Christian County.
They play a vital role in disaster preparedness, response and recovery.
Hopefully, after watching the video, you'll have a better understand of what the
program is all about and you will want to be a part Citizen Corps!
CERT Training for Preparedness
After watching the video, you might find that volunteering is not what you want to do.
But, you would like to take the CERT training for just for your own personal
knowledge...to be better prepared for a disaster. That is OK.
There is NO COST for the training, whether you want to be a volunteer or not!!

Community Preparedness is not the work of any one group. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of
every citizen in every community. The Citizen Corps Council extends an open invitation to all residents
Christian County to join in the movement to enhance safety for us all. Specifically, you can prepare and
participate by focusing on the following areas:
Yourself: Learn all you can about community preparedness. A good way to start is by reviewing the materials on this Web site and the other links listed on the left side.
Your Family: Make sure your whole family has a preparedness plan covering all contingencies. Download and complete a variety of comprehensive checklists for preparing your family, home, school, neighborhood, or business.
Your Neighborhood: Become active in your neighborhood or homeowners’ association
and review the community preparedness materials for discussion and action. If you do
not belong to an association, meet with a small group of neighbors and share preparedness information with them. Then extend your circle to encompass more neighbors.
Your Community: Get involved in community preparedness activities and organizations.Participating in CERT is a good way to start!!
