Disaster preparedness became a renewed priority for our nation as a direct response to the devastation of September 11, 2001. Following the tragedies of that day, government at all levels has imbedded stronger collaboration with non-governmental civic and private sector organizations and the general public in policies and practices. The Citizen Corps grassroots model of community preparedness has spread across the country, and Americans have been asked to become fully aware, trained, and practiced on how to respond to potential threats and hazards. To evaluate the nationís progress on personal preparedness, the Fed. Emergency Mgt. Agencyís (FEMAís) Community Preparedness Div. and Citizen Corps conduct national household surveys to measure the publicís knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors relative to preparing for a range of hazards. This report provides a summary of the findings from the 2007 Citizen Corps National Survey. The research objectives and survey questions for the 2007 Citizen Corps National Survey were developed based on previous research, preparedness modeling, and policy and guidance from the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS).
