Thank you for visiting the website for the Kenai Peninsula Citizen Corps! The Citizen Corps is a series of volunteer-based programs that provide communities with training, resources to help identify disaster risks and develop solutions, and opportunities to connect local leaders, volunteers and first responders.
The Kenai Peninsula Borough has over 15,000 square land miles and is subject to the risk of many natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, wildfire, and floods. In addition, there are possibilities of man-made emergencies such as hazardous materials releases.
Because our infrastructure is vulnerable to natural disasters, every citizen of the Kenai Peninsula must be prepared if we are not able to rely on typical infrastructure with a disaster kit that contains food, water, and first aid supplies. For Alaska, we recommend that each household have two weeks of supplies on hand for each family member.
You can help by being prepared and training and volunteering in Citizen Corps programs. Please look around our website for further information, and contact us if you have any questions or would like to get involved.
