Since Tropical Storm Allison, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike, the people of Harris County have acted with courage, compassion, and unity. To capture the spirit of service we have encouraged residents to dedicate at least two years of their lives—the equivalent of 4,000 hours—in service to others.

The Harris County Citizen Corps Council coordinates with volunteer groups such as the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, the United Way, and Citizen Corps programs to identify volunteer opportunities. The Citizen Corps programs include the Community Emergency Response Team, the Neighborhood Watch Program, Volunteers in Police Service, Fire Corps and the Medical Reserve Corps.

The HCCC is committed to bringing together local leaders, citizen volunteers, and the network of first responder organizations, such as fire and police departments, to share resources and to train individuals on how to handle a disaster situation.
