Often, during an emergency, many people are ready and willing to offer their help. The challenge is matching volunteers with the proper skills and training to assist in areas to which they are best suited and most needed—usually on a moment’s notice.

Ready Bridgeport is our City’s Emergency Management's public education program. Through this program, you can learn about the hazards you may face in the City of Bridgeport, how to prepare for all of these types of emergencies by creating an emergency plan, knowing who to call, where to go and what to do. We will educate and train you on how to respond when an emergency occurs whether a fire or hurricane, how to safeguard your home and most importantly your family. In addition, we will discuss ways to be better prepared during the recovery phase of an emergency so that you and your family or business can get back to a sense of normalcy faster. Bridgeport Emergency Management can send knowledgeable staff members and Bridgeport CERT volunteers to educate your community about preparing for emergencies.
