Get Involved

Major disasters can overwhelm first responders. Having a well informed and trained group of volunteers made up of citizens and neighbors will help get the first responders where they are needed most and ensure a safe homeland.

Here is how you can get involved

  • Volunteer - Get trained and volunteer with a Community Emergency Response Team, Medical Reserve Corps unit and/or other Citizen Corps Partner Program or Affiliate organization.
  • Connect and collaborate with your local emergency planning group, Citizen Corps Council or local emergency management agency.
  • Join or start a preparedness project that will teach others how to prepare for emergencies
  • Donate cash or goods in times of emergency
  • Sign up for the Amherst Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
  • Join the Amherst Medical Reserve Corps
