Potter County ‘Citizen Corps’ Volunteers Welcome

Potter County Today

citizencorpslogoPotter County Citizen Corps, a partnership between local volunteers throughout the county and emergency service providers, welcomes new members in many area communities. Last week’s flooding was a reminder of the vital role this volunteer program can play. Citizen Corps’ goal is to have in place local residents who are trained to react to disasters and other public emergencies, so that they can assist fire, ambulance, and other personnel.

The concept is “neighbors helping neighbors.” The volunteers are prepared to take care of their families first and to then take care of their neighbors. Each local team has a leader and a designated meeting area in the community. Additional information on the Citizen Corps is available at 274-8900.
