Citizen Corps Councils build on community strengths to implement preparedness programs. They carry out a local strategy involving government, community leaders and citizens so they are prepared and resilient in the face of all hazards. This council encourages citizens to help make communities like McKinney safer through personal responsibility, training and volunteer service.
The McKinney Citizen Corps Council (MCCC) serves in an advisory capacity, working together to strategically and dynamically provide an enhanced level of service to our community. MCCC coordinates the efforts of volunteer public safety programs including Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS), Neighborhood Watch (NW), Fire Corps, Citizens Police Academy (CPA) and Citizens Fire Academy (CFA).
The MCCC has members from the public, private, volunteer and community sectors. It offers public education and training activities in the areas of preparedness actions, hazard types, locations, targeted populations and response actions.
