The Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) realizes the nation’s rural and tribal emergency responders face unique challenges when compared to their urban counterparts.

As a result, RDPC is committed to providing small, rural, and tribal emergency responders and stakeholders with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to enhance the safety, security, and quality of life for their citizens through access to DHS-certified training and resources developed specifically for rural practitioners and communities.

The Center for Rural Development serves as Executive Agent for the Consortium in delivering relevant, all-hazards training to small, rural, and tribal jurisdictions across the United States.
