About Fire Corps: Fire Corps is a federally-funded program under the Citizen Corps initiative, which is a national grassroots effort to help communities prevent, prepare for, and respond to natural disasters and other emergencies. Fire Corps connects community volunteers to their local emergency service department to provide non-operational support, thus increasing the capacity and services the department can offer. It is administered on a national level by the National Volunteer Fire Council in partnership with the International Association of Fire Chiefs and many other organizations that make up the National Advisory Committee.
