Today, more and more families are declaring their independence and taking personal responsibility for their family’s own safety and security during times of emergency. These events may be natural or man-made, but equally as important. Our chapters of Responsible Citizens span not only across our local area, but across the USA. Together we are working to form stronger and more educated, self-reliant individuals and families.

We do this through group activities, discussions and seminars, some of the many topics we will talk about are:

  • Food Storage
  • Survival Packs
  • Water Purification
  • Creating communities
  • Emergency First Aid
  • After-the-disaster aid

Join us to express your thoughts and ideas. Share your desire for preparedness and self-reliance, or just come to meet other like-minded and responsible citizens, such as yourself.

Our chapter is located in the South(West) Suburbs of Chicagoland, with members from many communities both within and outside of this area. We welcome folks from any area, with any interest!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
