“Building a resilient community through citizens preparedness and participation.”
The mission of Ready Clayton County is to harness the power of every individual through education, training and volunteer service to make our community safer, stronger and better prepared to respond to threats of terrorism, crime, public health issues and disasters of all kinds.
Community Preparedness Principles
- Collaboration – Government, community leaders, businesses, faith based organizations and citizens.
- Integration – Non-governmental assets and resources must be fully integrated in government plans, preparations and disaster response.
- Personal/Organizational Preparedness: Everyone in Clayton County must be fully aware, trained and practiced on how to prevent, protect, mitigate, prepare for and respond to all threats.
- Volunteer Service: Citizen activism and volunteer service provides ongoing support for community safety and critical surge capacity in response and recovery.
