FEMA has given outthe National Citizen Corps Achievement Awards 2010 in ten categories to communities and individuals.

Presented in ten categories, these awards recognize innovative practices and achievements of communities and individuals across the nation that make our neighborhoods safer, stronger and better prepared to manage any emergency situation.  These award winners illustrate how citizens can take action and do their part to be prepared. 

The public is a valuable resource in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters.  Every day around the country, citizens like these take part in community emergency planning, foster successful public-private partnerships, prioritize collaboration, demonstrate creative and innovative local problem solving, implement sound programs that can be modeled for use by other communities, and show how individuals can take action to make a difference in their community.
