Formed in June 2002, the Benicia Citizen Corps Council (BCCC) brings together leadership from the business, education and religious communities to recruit, train and coordinate volunteers who wish to help maintain public safety in general and also be trained to respond effectively in the event of a disaster.
Leaders representing volunteer groups such as Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS), Neighborhood Watch Program (NWP), Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) Benicia Emergency Response Teams (BERT) Volunteer Fire Department and the Medical Reserve Corps, come together on the council to coordinate recruitment efforts, prioritize volunteer initiaves and plan for the effective use of volunteer resources in the event of a disaster affecting Benicia. Working under the direction of the Benicia Fire and Police Departments, it is the mission of the BCCC to prepare as many citizens as possible to be self-sufficient when "first responders" are busy handling only the most critical calls in a city-wide emergency situation.
Your interest in one or more of the volunteer programs described on this website is appreciated. In today's environment, it is critically important to know what to do to help yourself, your family and your neighbors prepare for unforseen emergency and disaster.
