Citizen Corps Council (CCC)

What is the Citizen Corps Council (CCC)?

Citizen Corps ( is a federal best practice, designed to integrate government and community resources in partnership for all-hazards preparedness. The Palo Alto/Stanford CCC is our local coordinating body for all activity related to emergency planning and homeland security. The CCC is a clearing house for information and best practices, as an advisory body to the City Manager and, therefore, integral to the Emergency Services Council (ESC) of the City.

There are many ways to participate and get involved. Visit our Emergency Services Website to find out how to Get Prepared and Get Involved!
