About Ready RGV!
Ready RGV! is a campaign of the Lower Rio Grande Valley Development Council (LRGVDC) Citizen Corps Program. The goal of Ready RGV! is to provide information to residents of the RGV on how they can learn, prepare, and engage when it comes to hazards, whether they're natural, technological, or man-made.
The LRGVDC Citizen Corps is coordinated by the LRGVDC’s Homeland Security program and is part of the national Citizen Corps initiative that seeks to make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond and recovers from emergencies.
The LRGVDC's Homeland Security program operates under the National Preparedness Goal, which is a secure and resilient Nation with the capabilities required across the whole community to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk.
