Citizen Corps Council of Pierce County
Shelter summit

It starts with you....
Are you ready to help? Do you want to make a difference in our community when disasters happen? Citizen Corps may just be your ticket. Citizen Corps was created to help everyone in American answer the questions, 'What can I do?' and 'How can I help?' No matter who you are, we all have a role in helping in our own home towns.

What is Citizen Corps?
Citizen Corps asks you, as individuals and families, to embrace the personal responsibility to be prepared for emergencies of all kinds. To support this goal, we offer training opportunities such as Neighborhood Emergency Teams (PC-NET), Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), Ham operators, first aid, and other emergency skills and work to connect you with established volunteer organizations such as Medical Reserve Corps (MRC).

We also recognize the desire of community members to reach out and volunteer to support local emergency responders, disaster relief efforts, and community safety. Faith-based and non-profit organizations, businesses, and individuals work side by side with government agencies to plan for an organized response to help the needs of our community following disasters.

Citizen Corps Council of Pierce County is one of nearly 2,500 councils across the country. Each one represents a grass-roots approach to bring together government and community leaders to involve residents in all-hazards emergency preparedness and response programs

Citizen Corps Council of Pierce County (CCCPC) brings together local government agencies, non-profit and faith based organizations, businesses and service organizations to carry out a local strategy to involve government, community leaders and citizens in all-hazards preparedness and resilience. We plan together ahead of time how we can best support our neighbors in times of disasters. CCCPC is a 501c3, non-profit organization.
