​​​There are currently no plans to have a Ready Ann Arbor Training for 2023. We will post updates here if there are any changes in that status.

​The Ann Arbor Poli​ce and Fire departments have launched a new community preparedness program for residents. Modeled after the Department of Homeland Security's Ready campaign, Ready Ann Arbor will aim to educate and empower the public to prepare for, r​espond to and mitigate emergencies, including natural and manmade disasters, while promoting preparedness through public involvement.

The two-day training takes place over two Saturdays. The topics covered during this initial training include crime prevention, hands-only CPR, personal safety, stop the bleed, active shooter training, home fire safety, covering resources in community, and fire extinguishers training. 

Ready Ann Arbor Participants Must:

  • Be an Ann Arbor resident.

  • Be at least 18 years old.

  • Complete and submit the application​.

  • Attend all classes to receive completion certificate.
