President Bush has asked us to join the Citizens Corp. Local Community Citizen Corp is lead by a Citizens Corp Council. The Council is responsible for inventoring volunteers, their skills and experience. These volunteers will be identified to Agencies and Organizations like the Police, Fire Department, EMS, Red Cross, Salvation Army and others. One a volunteer has decided which of the above they want to support, the Citizens Corp will co ordinate with the proper Agency to give them the required training. Some Citizen Corp Councils are considering the formation of a Auxillary Communications Service made up of volunteer licensed Amatuers. There is not only training available but equipment can be supplied from govt stores or purchased on the open market. There is $240M in the 2003 budget for the operation of the Corp.
