Ready Marine Corps is your Marine Corps emergency preparedness program.
Emergencies can come from any direction. While we don’t like to think about disasters, they happen at Marine Corps installations and surrounding communities worldwide. Marines, Civilian Marines, and families can be affected or know someone who is affected by natural hazards, like typhoons and wildfires; manmade hazards, like train derailments and chemical spills; disease outbreaks, like Ebola and flu; and terrorism. As an important member of the emergency management team, you are the first line of defense in an all hazards event. By staying informed, making a plan, and building a kit, you increase your and your fellow Marines’ chance of survival, limit damage to property, and save time when seconds matter the most.
