ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency will create a Citizen Corps Council in Alaska.
Citizen Corps is a community-based initiative aimed at allowing people to engage in homeland security efforts and support first responders and emergency managers.
The councils help arrange volunteer training and provide information for public education efforts.
The Anchorage Citizen Corps will work with state and federal agencies to coordinate local programs such as community emergency response teams, Volunteers in Police Service, Neighborhood watch and the Medical Reserve Corps.
