Welcome to the Heart of Texas Regional Citizen Corps Program website. Following the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the need for increased community involvement in preparedness and response was recognized. The recognization of this need ultimately formed the Citizens Corps Program that we know today.
Citizen Corps was created to help coordinate volunteer activities that will make our communities safer, stronger, and more prepared to respond to any emergency situation. Citizen Corps Programs develop relationships with local emergency management and response personnel, local jurisdictions and non-governmental organizations in order to build upon the strengths within a community. As a result, these relationships culminate a more prepared and safer community for each of us.
With Citizens Corps, there is a place for everyone from every walk of life and the volunteer opportunities are endless. For more information about the Citizen Corps Program, or any of its components, please refer to our Programs page.
