The Schoolcraft County Citizen Corps is designed to help the citizens of Schoolcraft County to better prepare themselves in the event of an emergency. By being informed and prepared, citizens can immediately begin to access their needs and the needs of their families, in the event a disaster does occur.
Individuals can make a difference in their own community but not everyone has bought into preparedness. Research on personal preparedness indicates that individuals who believe they are prepared for disasters often are not as prepared as they think. In addition, some admit they do not plan to prepare at all.
