This website will address the Emergency Service organizations as defined by FEMA to include:

• Government Emergency Management Organizations

• Citizen Corps Volunteer Organizations

• Other state, local and community organizations the provide assistance during an emergency or disaster


The objective of this program is to:
• Identify participating Citizen Corps, Emergency Management and other Emergency Service Organizations within our geographic area,

• List the resources and services they can provide before, during and after a disaster or emergency,

• List the resources and services they may require before, during and after a disaster or emergency,

• Provide a list of alternatives to communicate and coordinate with emergency authorities and Emergency Service Organizations appropriate to the situational environment,

• Describe the means to deliver or receive the requested resource.


* Interoperability was first defined for the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) by a joint committee of the JINTACCS Program which included the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, National Security Agency (NSA) and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and was chaired by David Seltzer. These information exchange standards were enacted by the U.S. Military Services and Agencies as the U.S. Message Text Formats (USMTF) and by NATO as the ADatP-3 Message Text Formats (ADatP-3 MTF).
