The 2009 FEMA Region III United We Stand Award was granted to DC Citizen Corps for supporting and participating in an extraordinary number of preparedness-related events – in the smallest geographic jurisdiction – during NPM. DC Citizen Corps again collaborated closely with the DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (HSEMA) to educate and engage DC residents. Together, they executed and supported 94 NPM events and initiatives. A particularly noteworthy initiative offered DC Citizen Corps emergency preparedness presentations to residents attending 37 Advisory Neighborhood Commissions meetings at local police precincts. Additionally, the DC Citizen Corps staff shared preparedness education during 18 Metropolitan Police Department Public Service Announcement Meetings throughout the month.
