Prepare. Defend. Assist. The Texas Civil Defense is a volunteer organization comprised of former military personnel and civilians willing to serve their individual communities. Our members include teachers, police officers, truck drivers, self-employed individuals, medical personnel, retirees, and individuals employed in various aspects of the business world. Because we are a volunteer organization, we spend much of our own money to provide supplemental information for our training programs and to advertise our services. http://www.orgsites.com/tx/tcd/index.html If you don't live in the great state of Texas you can start your own group in your state.
