Ready Corps

Ready Corps, an AmeriCorps program managed by Points of Light, teaches individuals and families how to best prepare for disaster.

During training sessions, corps members teach people how to better prepare themselves and their families for disasters, and ensure participants know what hazards and emergency alerts systems are available in their communities.

Corps members also conduct service projects, including emergency kit-building and door-to-door canvassing to share information about being prepared. Members also help strengthen communities’ ability to respond and recover from disasters by training volunteer leaders and other community organizations on how to manage volunteers during a disaster as well as covering other disaster topics.
