Get Involved

You can help your family and community become safer, stronger, and better prepared for an emergency. Prepared citizens can take care of themselves and help care for others, which allows first responders to focus on the most life threatening situations.  You can help by developing a family disaster plan; put together a Disaster Kit; and take advantage of CPR, First Aid, CERT, VIPS and/or other courses offered in your community.

Every community is different. Citizen Corps calls on Arlington Heights residents’ creativity and inventiveness to develop other programs or activities that work in your area and that encompass all sectors of your community. Successful programs or approaches to citizen participation that start in Arlington Heights can spread nationwide through the Citizen Corps.
