The Community College Citizen Preparedness Program (3CP2) was designed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in collaboration with the nation’s community colleges. NEMCC is currently the only college in North Mississippi to offer the free, 2-hour-long 3CP2 training sessions where people are trained to recognize, prepare for and recover from disasters ranging from severe weather to terrorism.
It is important to recognize that in a widespread emergency, professional first responders may not always be able to reach you quickly. The most important action you can take in helping your local responders is being able to take care of yourself and those in your care; the more people who are prepared, the quicker the community will recover.
3CP2 training provides a step-by-step approach to learning about local emergency plans, identifying hazards that affect our local area, and developing a disaster plan and supplies kit. Other topics covered include evacuation, emergency public shelters, animals in disaster, and information specific to people with disabilities.
