Homeland Security Volunteer Team
The Nature Coast Volunteer Center (NCVC), whose mission is to strengthen communities through volunteerism and service, is the lead agency for Emergency Support Function 15 (ESF 15), and Volunteers and Donations. In this capacity, NCVC has developed a strong network of partnerships with various agencies throughout Citrus County.
The purpose of ESF 15 is to organize, track, consolidate and distribute any and all donations that may be received by Citrus County after a major disaster. In addition, ESF 15 is responsible for being the "check-in point" for any individual or group who may volunteer to assist with disaster recovery in Citrus County. NCVC will serve as the Volunteer Reception Center for volunteers.
As a disaster volunteer you may be invited to participate in various exercises sponsored by Emergency Management. You will be notified of various training opportunities that become available such as a Volunteer Reception Center and Special Needs Call Down Drill.
Volunteers who join, will attend four or more hours of training sponsored by NCVC annually and will receive a unique Homeland Security Volunteer Team pin. If you want to ensure that you are invited to future training opportunities, please give us a call to register as a member of the Homeland Security Volunteer Team.
