The article discusses the development of a corps of citizen advocates, enabling the community to provide much needed non-operational assistance to fire and emergency medical services throughout the country in the United States. The types of jobs that citizen advocates would do are limited only by the imagination of the department or agency they assist. The corps of citizens has the official name of Fire Corps. One benefit of Fire Corps is the direct communication it provides with citizen to better address everchanging community needs.
