FY 2008 Citizen Corps Program National Volunteer Fire Council Guidance and Application Kit: The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) administers the Fire Corps Program. Fire Corps, a Partner Program of FEMA's Citizen Corps Program, will work closely with the Community Preparedness Division (CPD). This collaboration will promote State and local fire and emergency services representation on the State and local Citizen Corps Councils to promote and develop tools and resources to build community resiliency. Where a Fire Corps program exists in the local community, leadership from the local fire service should be actively involved in their local Council. The NVFC will perform Phase V of the Fire Corps Program under the FY08 Citizen Corps Program (CCP). In completing the tasks, the NVFC will directly support the Citizen Corps mission to engage everyone in American hometown security by making it possible for citizens and other community members to increase the capacities and abilities of their local fire/EMS department by volunteering in non-emergency roles. In its production of materials and resources, Fire Corps will be identified as a proud partner of Citizen Corps The NVFC strives to generate increased awareness of the Fire Corps program while also eliminating many of the barriers and difficulties experienced by fire and EMS departments in implementing or maintaining a Fire Corps program. In doing so, we hope to increase the number of registered Fire Corps programs as well as the number of engaged and active citizen advocates, allowing our nation's fire and emergency services to provide additional and improved services and making our communities safer, stronger, and better prepared.
