Published on 14 April 2010
The awards will recognise innovative practices and achievements of Citizen Corps Councils across the US.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is pleased to announce the 2010 National Citizen Corps Achievement Awards Celebrating Resilient Communities. These awards will recognize innovative practices and achievements of Citizen Corps Councils across the nation that are making our communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to manage any emergency situation.
Winning Citizen Corps Councils will exemplify excellence in community emergency planning, foster successful public-private partnerships, prioritize collaboration, demonstrate creative and innovative local problem solving, and implement sound programs that can be modelled for use by other communities. All submissions will feature programs that took place during the period of January 1, 2009 - May 17, 2010.
Two representatives from the winning Council in each award category will be FEMA's honored guests at a meeting in Washington, D.C. as part of National Preparedness Month. Awardees will also participate in a community preparedness roundtable discussion to share ideas and solutions regarding challenges in community preparedness with other award winning councils, FEMA leadership, and Citizen Corps partners. FEMA will also work with each award recipient to develop a case study to be posted on the Citizen Corps website (www.citizencorps.gov), featured in outreach activities and webinars, and shared with the other councils nationwide.
