Safe America Prepared

Our Vision

  • To protect Americans from future disasters through common preparedness
  • To build truly safer communities by forming public/private partnerships that can rapidly respond to emerging critical issues
  • To create leadership – through training and formation – that will address future risks/hazards and make intelligent choices that safeguard their communities
  • To make grassroots resiliency “real” – forging a new paradigm in which practicing response to emergencies at home and work is the rule and not the exception
