8 A National Project TSA/FAM The Vision 100 Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act requires air carriers providing scheduled passenger air transportation to conduct basic security training for their flight and cabin crewmembers in order to prepare them for potential threat conditions that may occur onboard an aircraft. The Act further requires the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to develop and make available to flight and cabin crewmembers an advanced self defense training program that includes appropriate and effective responses for defending against an attacker. Administered by the TSA Office of Law Enforcement / Federal Air Marshal Service and implemented by AACC through community colleges, the Crew Member Self Defense Training (CMSDT) program is available to any actively employed flight or cabin crew member. The program is delivered in two parts. First, the crew member receives and reviews a self-paced, interactive DVD and student manual designed to familiarize them with basic self defense concepts and techniques. After completing the review and a short written assessment, the crew member attends one day of hands-on training at a participating community college.

10 A National Project Citizens Corps FEMA The mission of Citizen Corps is to harness the power of every individual through education, training, and volunteer service to make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to the threats of terrorism, crime, public health issues, and disasters of all kinds. The Citizen Corps mission is accomplished through a national network of state, local, and tribal Citizen Corps Councils. These Councils build on community strengths to implement the Citizen Corps programs and will carry out a local strategy to have every American participate.
11 Citizens Corps - FEMA Citizens Corps Councils Personal responsibility: Developing a household preparedness plan and disaster supplies kits, observing home health and safety practices, implementing disaster mitigation measures, and participating in crime prevention and reporting. Training: Taking classes in emergency preparedness, response capabilities, first aid, CPR, fire suppression, and search and rescue procedures. Volunteer service: Engaging individuals in volunteer activities that support first responders, disaster relief groups, and community safety organizations. Everyone can do something to support local law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services, community public health efforts, and the four stages of emergency management: prevention, mitigation, response and recovery efforts.
12 A National Project - Citizens Corps - FEMA Local Citizen Corps Councils will: promote and strengthen the Citizen Corps programs at the community level, such as Volunteers in Police Service programs, CERT teams, Medical Reserve Corps units, and Neighborhood Watch groups; provide opportunities for special skills and interests; develop targeted outreach for the community, including special needs groups; provide opportunities of training in first aid and emergency preparedness; organize special projects and community events; encourage cooperation and collaboration among community leaders; and capture smart practices and report accomplishments; and create opportunities for all residents to participate.
