Executive Summary

Wisconsin Emergency Management will have 20 AmeriCorps members who will develop jurisdictional emergency volunteer management plans and deliver emergency preparedness training in 14-18 locations with municipal, tribal, and/or county government. Host sites will represent a broad geographic and demographic cross-section of Wisconsin, from larger urban areas of Milwaukee and Madison, mid-size communities such as Fond du Lac and La Crosse, and small rural communities in the northern and western parts of the state, such as Grant and Sawyer counties. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for completing and exercising emergency volunteer management plans in 14-18 jurisdictions, and delivering personal preparedness instruction to 3,240 individuals. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 360 volunteers that will be engaged in executing the jurisdictional emergency volunteer management plans. This project will focus on the CNCS focus areas of capacity building and disaster services. The CNCS investment of $130,503 will be matched by $47,444 in public funding.
