CitizenReady® is a standardized, national disaster health education program that provides critical medical and mental health information to help individuals protect themselves an others in a disaster or other serious emergency.
The CitizenReady program will: (1) provide competency-based education to help citizens protect themselves, assist others, and enhance national efforts to prepare for, respond to and recover from incidents of terrorism and other catastrophic events; (2) incorporate ways to make the training widely available; and (3) encourage public participation in local preparedness and response efforts. The courses are intended to be delivered at no charge or at cost.
For detailed information, please view the CitizenReady guide: How you can prepare for disasters and public health emergencies.
There are currently four course modules that are available:
- Are you ready? Personal Preparedness for Citizens

- Prepare for the Unthinkable: A CitizenReady program on responding in a bombing event
