RSVP & Citizen Corps: Partners in Preparedness
We at Citizen Corps would like to recognize the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) for their efforts, hard work and dedication to the citizens of Delaware. RSVP was instrumental in recruiting and coordinating the efforts to establish a Citizen Corps Council at the County level.
RSVP has been a terrific partner with Citizen Corps, DEMA, Red Cross and many other organizations. They have developed a preparedness presentation and utilize their volunteers, to take the “make a Plan”, “make a Kit” message to the citizen of Delaware. Currently RSVP and specially Maryann Hook, and April Wiley have reached out to many volunteer organizations, business, emergency responders and citizens in an effort to assist and make a difference.
• RSVP is a member on the State Citizen Corps council
• RSVP is an active member of the Disaster Preparedness Coalition (developed to provide consistency of message with regard to Preparedness
• RSVP is also a member of our Family Emergency Preparedness Planning Committee (An Event held every year.)
