DHS/FEMA/PIA-029 - Citizen Corps Program

FEMA’s Office of Protection and National Preparedness (PNP), Individual and Community Preparedness Division (ICPD) administers the Citizen Corps Program, which also includes the Citizen Corps web-based application, and the Citizen Corps Database. Citizen Corps’ mission is to strengthen the collaboration between government and community leaders from all sectors to encourage citizens’ preparedness through education, training, and volunteer service to make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to all hazards and all threats. Through Citizen Corps, communities can establish and register Citizen Corps Councils (Councils) and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) programs. This PIA analyzes Citizen Corps’ collection, use, maintenance, retrieval, and dissemination of PII associated with points of contacts designated by Councils, CERTs, and other Citizen Corps partners.  June 28, 2013
