The catastrophic events related to Hurricane Harvey have devastated Texas and left the nation searching for answers. This tragedy has shed a light on the need for all citizens to prepare for unexpected community hazards. In 2003, the City of Temecula formed the Temecula Citizen Corps (TCC) to educate and train local residents to contribute to the community’s well-being. The TCC provides Temecula residents the resources they need, in the event of an emergency or disaster, by providing and advocating for personal responsibility, disaster training, and volunteer service. Moreover, the TCC’s mission is to “harness the power of every individual through education, training, and volunteer service to make Temecula safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to the threats of terrorism, crime, public health issues and disasters of all kinds."
If you are interested in becoming a part of the team, the TCC meets every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at the Field Operations Center (across the driveway from Old City Hall) at 43230 Business Park Dr, Temecula, CA 92590. There is no cost to attend or obligation to join. All are welcome!
Please check out the TCC’s website https://temeculaca.gov/ for more information. If you have any questions, you may contact the TCC directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s never too early to prepare for an emergency!
