Issaquah Citizen Corps is comprised of community volunteers who donate time and expertise to help prepare and train our community to be ready in emergencies.  We offer various training to teach you what you need to know to care for your family, friends, and neighbors when mother nature and the normal infrastructure aren't cooperating.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training is the typical starting point for those looking to get involved.  This will teach you the basics you need to know if case of emergencies.

Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is for medical professionals and those willing to offer non-medical support them when a situation occurs requiring extra medical assistance for the community.

Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) is a program to get you and your neighbors together and learn about each other, with the goal to be ready in emergencies or to just help when assistance is needed.

We also offer practice with emergency communications.  When bad things happen one of the first things to disappear is standard means of communications.  During the CERT class we try to get you comfortable use basic handheld FRS radios.  Many members are also licensed amateur (HAM) radio operators.
