How can you get involved?

Neighborhoods are meeting to define their own priorities and organize themselves around three objectives:

  1. Prepare each residence. This focuses on basic emergency preparation and hazard mitigation.

  2. Meet your neighbors before a disaster and create an emergency response plan for each block and neighborhood. This includes neighbors helping neighbors, rally points and a communication plan with first responders.

  3. Implement resilient shelter-in-place resources. This includes, but is not limited to, alternative power sources, water purification, telecom microgrids.

We encourage all levels of participation.

Take your next step!

Don’t have any spare time? Prepare yourself with:

    • Water — 1 gallon per day per person (don’t forget your pets!)

    • Food — items that don’t need to be refrigerated or cooked (don’t forget your pets!)

    • First aid kit — including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications & pet meds

Can check on your immediate neighbors? Coordinate with your Block Lead.

Can help disseminate information to your block? Volunteer to be a Block Lead.

Can facilitate meetings in your neighborhood and liaise with Coastside CERT and other neighborhoods? Volunteer to be a Neighborhood Lead.

We can’t do everything at once, but we can make progress towards resilience in small, coordinated steps, emphasizing common sense communications, cooperation, resource management, and risk mitigation.
