What is Ready Marine Corps?
Ready Marine Corps is the USMC’s proactive emergency preparedness, public awareness program. It provides information, tools, and resources to empower the Marine Corps community to live its ethos for “Being Most Prepared When Our Nation Is Least Prepared” in an all hazards environment. Initiated by Marine Corps Installations Command (MCICOM), the program is aligned with the National Ready Campaign and with other Department of Defense (DoD) and government Ready preparedness programs.
The information and materials found on the Ready Marine Corps website are designed to support operational force readiness by strengthening the Marine Corps Community’s ability to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies and disasters. Preparedness information, tips, and recommendations found on the Ready Marine Corps website are closely aligned with those offered to the public by authoritative government resources such as Ready.gov, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
