MRC’s Role Promoting Until Help Arrives in Local Communities
The MRC plays a critical role in promoting the Until Help Arrives program and educating the public in communities nationwide. We invite MRC units to share the Until Help Arrives training resources widely within your local networks. And we encourage you to host instructor-led trainings with MRC volunteers and/or the general public in your community. To foster community engagement, you may also want to post your events/trainings on FEMA’s Prepareathon Event Calendar
