History

Homeland Preparedness Project works with local jurisdictions to promote safety in the community by facilitating preparedness for all types of disasters and citizen participation in public safety through volunteerism.

Homeland Preparedness Project was formed in 2004 as a result of conversations with officials from the Department of Homeland Security, Office of Domestic Preparedness, County officials, and citizens interested in improving the level of preparedness in their communities.

These discussions highlighted the need for a trained volunteer workforce to supplement local resources in the event of a large incident. In these times of shrinking budgets and increasing risks, many jurisdictions do not have the resources to fund and manage a citizen volunteer program.

Recognizing a serious need, the founders of Homeland Preparedness Project came together to form a non-profit organization that could provide these services at no cost to the local jurisdiction.

With years of experience building and managing volunteer organizations, working in public safety, and providing training, the founders of Homeland Preparedness Project brought considerable skills and abilities to the project.

Homeland Preparedness Project can provide a variety of services to local agencies with a focus on improving the readiness and safety of the community.

Our core program is Citizen Corp, a program of the U.S Department of Homeland Security – Office of Domestic Preparedness. Citizen Corp programs harness the value of citizen volunteers for preparing and responding to disasters and emergencies. Homeland Preparedness Project will recruit, train, exercise, and manage volunteers from the community. Homeland Preparedness Project will also work with the agencies in the jurisdiction to facilitate volunteer opportunities for the Citizen Corp volunteers outside of emergencies. The type of the work these volunteers can participate in is only limited by the agencies’ needs and the training and safety of the volunteers.

Homeland Preparedness Project will also provide WMD Awareness training to First Responders in the community. Using DHS qualified instructors and curricula, Homeland Preparedness Project will provide First Responders with this critical information without requiring travel or significant down time.

In short, Homeland Preparedness Project can provide tools to create a safer community at no cost to the jurisdiction.
