The United States Civil Defense Association (USCDA) ( A Constitutional Sheriff’s Posse)

MISSION

“Our goal and mission is to protect lives and property by effectively preparing for, preventing, responding to, and recovering from all threats, crimes, hazards, and emergencies. USCDA is a private organization and not a government entity and it exists to provide humanitarian aid, and disaster response and relief on behalf of the duly elected constitutional county sheriff’s across America and help provide emergency relief where needed in his/her area of jurisdiction and to those citizens in need, which may also include search and rescue, safety, force multiplier, and improved force protection, and all aspects of security. During man-made or natural disasters. USCDA will respond to requests from any Constitutional sheriff”.

In time of disasters the county sheriff is ultimately in charge of over all emergency operations in his/her county and bears all responsibility. During those situations deputies can become overwhelmed and the sheriff may need additional trained and experienced man power that operate under the command of the sheriff. Crimes, misdemeanors, disasters, public safety, community events, and keeping the peace have been the traditional role of the Sheriff. A new threat/wave of manmade disasters, crime and danger is assaulting the citizen under the protection of the Sheriff as well as the very office of the Sheriff itself. Authorities in some jurisdictions are advocating abolishing the Office of sheriff altogether.

Sheriff your follow citizens are considering one unthinkable transgression against their rights with Obama signing the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), which authorizes the president to detain any person indefinitely without the right to appear before a judge, nullifying Habeas Corpus. Unbelievably this takes our rights back to pre Magna Carta days, AD 1215. Romney has said he supports NDAA. The Patriot Act, NDAA, and a host of laws and executive orders, in the name of homeland security, have stripped our rights and reduced us to a benevolent dictatorship. Federal warrants have to go through the sheriff’s office. Remember a constitutional sheriff is a citizen’s advocate and may be the only protection from the corrupt federal government.

USCDA also offers programs serving all 3,000 counties nationwide. This represents the best practices that a successful USCDA and County Sheriff to start and maintain their partnership.

USCDA while working in partnership with the county sheriff will establish a local USCDA chapter or work with an existing USCDA chapter to train citizens in the county in Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) programs educating them about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in

basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. USCDA conducts many more emergency Management training courses made available to your county residents.

All constitutional county sheriffs should consider adding us to their emergency resource directory so in times of emergencies they cam call on the USCDA..

We have strategically aligned ourselves with experts and academia from around the world. Combined, we have along-standing tradition of excellence in the fields of disaster response, humanitarian aid, and international medicine. counter-terrorism, physical and technical security, expeditionary logistics. All through trained and experienced member volunteers.

USCDA is a USA based organization made up of people from all walks of life, including lay people and current and former Military, Local, County, State and Federal Law Enforcement, Special Operations, National Security, and Intelligence personnel as well as Fireman, Wild Land Firefighters, Paramedics, Emergency Medical technicians (EMTs) and other medical personal including Doctors and Nurses.

Nations have had to rely on citizen volunteers in times of crisis such as war, revolutions, manmade and natural disasters throughout history. It is the citizen that supports emergency government and agencies. It is the trained volunteer who provides needed extra manpower during times of extreme crisis. USCDA was created to promote and defend the unalienable God-given rights of all citizens, regardless of race, sex or national origin, as is expressed in the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

We promote and defend the principles of just government bequeathed to us by our forefathers. History has shown that the greatest system of checks and balances exists with the people and their States to check the powers accrued by the federal government and to support the people during emergencies of every nature and by supporting the United States Constitution. Each member takes an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Our goal is to create local chapters in every county and city where the local residents can be trained in emergency management, and to encourage all our members to train in the many disciplines necessary to the function of the organization as a whole and to the members individually. We further educate our members in areas of history, the constitution, law and principle as laid out by our founding Fathers.

We believe in the Constitution and the principles of freedom, liberty and justice for all. By joining USCDA you will have available training for both man-made and natural emergencies. And learn how to protect your family, your community and your nation. Our members are able to deal with and respond to any emergencies. When responding to disasters for the people and by the people the dollar savings to the peoples government is immeasurable. It is neither practical nor economically feasible to maintain such a sizable establishment under ordinary conditions. But, in times of real crisis they are necessary and must be readily accessed.

We have developed and use a cohesive and competent command structure. This hierarchical system of rank used by the USCDA is a line authority system proven most efficient and functional in a crisis. Large numbers of volunteers can be accessed and quickly pressed into service more efficiently. Much of the training provided members are though USCDA, with some selected special training through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, (FEMA) National Fire Academy, California Specialized Training Institute. Survival, Preparedness, Firearms training and strategic training provided by USCDA and other private groups.. USCDA centers on these areas and of accessing, organizing, and utilizing volunteers as a backup resource if needed for national, and state government and more importantly county sheriffs. The USCDA provides a structure and organization whereby we can provide well trained and supplied boots on the ground. Provide emergency supplies of all types including heavy equipment such as bulldozers and emergency medical supplies. This is provided and maintained by, individuals, companies, and private organizations for low-cost, or no cost, to the government. These reserves of working heavy equipment and skilled operators are an economic necessity in time of disaster. Equipment provided by private sources is often equal to, or exceeds, that provided by the government. USCDA will respond to any emergency with all our resources and volunteers when deemed appropriate.

USCDA is civil protection and is an organized effort to protect the U.S. citizens from man made or natural disasters or nuclear or military attack. It uses the principles of Incident Command System ( ICS), emergency operations: prevention, mitigation, preparation, response, or emergency evacuation, and recovery.

Since the end of the Cold War, the focus of civil defense has largely shifted from military attack to emergencies and disasters in general. The new concept is described by a number of terms, each of which has its own specific shade of meaning, such as crisis management, emergency management, emergency preparedness, contingency planning, emergency services, and civil protection.

During the Cold War, civil defense was seen largely as defending against and recovering from an attack involving nuclear weapons. After the end of the Cold War, the focus moved from defense against nuclear war to defense against a terrorist attack possibly involving chemical or biological weapons; in the context of the United States this eventually led to the creation the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). After the September 11 attacks in 2001, in the United States the concept of civil defense has been revisited under the umbrella term of homeland security and all-hazards emergency management.

Relatively small investments in preparation can speed up recovery by months or years and thereby prevent millions of deaths by hunger, cold and disease. [citation needed] According to human capital theory in economics, a country’s population is more valuable than all of the land, factories and other assets that it possesses. People rebuild a country after its destruction, and it is therefore important for the economic security of a country that it protect its people. According to psychology, it is important for people to feel like they are in control of their own destiny, and preparing for uncertainty via civil defense may help to achieve this. If the people are not in control, and the preparations ineffective, the government loses its credibility and the respect of its citizens.

You want to help, but what can you do WTSHTF? Terrorists destroy a government building and a friend is trapped inside. A large earthquake has destroyed much of the city and all local agencies are overloaded. A child may have been exposed to chemical or biological agents. A major fire is spreading to your neighborhood, but all firefighters are busy elsewhere. A building collapsed, people are injured and no immediate medical attention is available. Your worried about the legal aspects of providing help. Young hikers are lost in the forest. Homes have been destroyed and people need shelter and food. A neighbor may be experiencing a heart attack. A building has caved in and hasty rescue efforts might cause even more damage and loss of life. Or worse yet, hostel foreign troops try to occupy your area or full resurrection with marauding gangs threaten you and your family. When trained you will be much better able to handle such situations and survive. When properly trained and prepared you can provide protection for you, your family and your organization. You’ll be able to show loved ones what to do when the next big earthquake comes and administer emergency first aid. Set up an emergency communications network/ Provide help while avoiding legal complications. Utilize emergency preparedness or disaster preparedness kits. Organize search and rescue teams. Be the person who knows what to do in an emergency.
