CHECK ALERT STATUS
NCORP, a grass-roots organization, was formed to continue the work of the Gilmore Commission, a Congressionally-mandated commission begun during the Clinton administration, which was charged with identifying the most pressing security threats to the United States. Because of the nature of responding to an emergency, NCORP developed five key areas that would work to "integrate resources into the national template template by providing essential resources and networks that link them together."
Through a program called the Ready America Initiative, NCORP outlined five major areas of emergency response and preparedness: addressing public health and medical situations, surge capacity and the ability of regional, local and community health officials to respond to a crisis; training and equipping citizens with the necessary tools to help respond to a threat or crisis; giving the public the necessary information to help make educated decisions about how to best prepare; providing information for federal, state, local and tribal communities on disaster readiness and networking; and helping to respond and contain an emergency when it happens.
NCORP is a 501c(3) established to enhance community and public/private partnerships concerning community preparedness.
