Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies

About the organization

Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies (BRACE) is a community -based disaster coalition that leads in emergency preparedness, response, and recovery efforts in Escambia County.

We train and mobilize volunteers, and collaborate with local, regional, and national partners to ensure the disaster readiness of our community.


The VISTA will work with stakeholders to identify projects and implement plans for downtown economic development and the National Parks concept design. Tracking systems will be designed which will monitor resources, partners, and the funding for the successful implementation of these projects. A communications plan will be designed that will engage shareholders and local residents to lead to community buy-in and engagement. Finally, the VISTA will analyze data pertaining to land development to identify trends and projections for economic growth and future stability.
