Touch Base with your Fire Corps State Advocate and Citizen Corps Council

Tuesday, 20 July 2010

Information sharing and networking are essential components to the success of the Fire Corps program. In order to strengthen individual programs and coordinate efforts at the local, state, and regional level, Fire Corps teams can work with their State Advocate and local Citizen Corps Council.

The Citizen Corps mission is accomplished through a national network of state, local, and tribal Citizen Corps Councils. These Councils build on community strengths to implement the Citizen Corps preparedness programs and carry out a local strategy to involve government, community leaders, and citizens in all-hazards preparedness and resilience. Fire Corps teams can locate a Council to become involved and incorporate their efforts with local Citizen Corps activities.

In addition to Citizen Corps Councils, the Fire Corps State Advocate Network assists local fire/EMS departments who are establishing or implementing a Fire Corps program. The purpose of the Fire Corps State Advocate Network is to harness the energy of the Fire Corps program at the state and local level by sharing resources and information to make local, state, and national Fire Corps efforts better and stronger.

State Advocates serve as the point of contact to departments and Fire Corps programs within their assigned geographic areas. These representatives assist the Fire Corps national office in promoting the program and help new and existing programs expand their services.

Contact your Fire Corps State Advocate with questions about your program or for information about how to start a Fire Corps program. Inform your State Advocate of your successes or upcoming activities so they may share your news with the Fire Corps national office and throughout your state.
