(Smyrna) – The Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) is proud to acknowledge special recognition given to Delaware Citizen Corps.  Citizen Corps is a volunteer-centered organization that conducts public education and outreach about emergency preparedness, and conducts training to help volunteers play important roles during disasters.

The Honorable Mention Individual and Community Preparedness award to Delaware Citizen Corps from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) cites the local group’s innovative practices and achievements that help make communities stronger, safer, and better prepared to manage emergencies.

DEMA Director Jamie Turner joined with FEMA in congratulating the year-long Citizen Corps preparedness efforts: “Citizen Corps is an important component in preparing Delaware for potential disasters of all kinds.  It is one of our organizations that works with the City of Wilmington, as well as New Castle, Kent and Sussex Counties.  Through continued work with Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), and events such as the Family Preparedness Day, Citizen Corps provides a valuable service to the entire state.  I am pleased to see their efforts recognized by FEMA.”  

Delaware Citizen Corps works under the umbrella of the Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA).
