About NCCP 2009

     The 2009 National Conference on Community Preparedness: The Power of Citizen Corps, is being hosted by FEMA's Community Preparedness Division on August 9-13, 2009, at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, VA. The conference is intended to help communities become safer, stronger, and better prepared for all types of hazards.

About Citizen Corps

     Citizen Corps is in its eighth year. Its mission is to bring communities together in a grassroots effort to instill personal responsibility and build community resilience. It was founded upon the understanding that citizens are vital partners in the welfare of our communities and in building community resilience – while the government provides critical services for a safe and secure America, it cannot replace the value of a prepared, informed public.

     Citizen Corps Councils bring together community leaders from local government, emergency management and emergency service providers, hospitals, schools, volunteer and service organizations, businesses, faith-based organizations, and advocacy groups. Having all stakeholders at the table allows each community to be unified in its efforts to improve the health and safety of the community and to prepare for and respond to disasters through the tenants of civic engagement and personal responsibility. Learn more about Citizen Corps.

What to Expect at NCCP 2009

NCCP will bring together approximately 750 state and local elected officials, emergency management, fire and police services, public health and emergency medical services, non-governmental organizations, private business and industry, advocacy groups, and members of public.
