Our CEPOA Neighborhood Emergency Awareness Team (NEAT) is currently seeking Block Captains and neighbors who want to assure that we are prepared when there is a local emergency. Read the Block Captain Job Description here.
During November and December members of the Team are planning to “Beta Test” a survey process with those they know, to show them the free preparedness handouts we plan to give each neighbor, including a “Vial of Life”—(a plastic container you put on the outside of your refrigerator which contains emergency information for first responders). Team members will also beta test a Household Information Form that can identify neighbors who have special needs or who have special skills they might provide in time of emergency. We are planning to survey the entire neighborhood in February and March.
In an emergency, we want to be able to account for all our neighbors and identify those who need assistance. We want to encourage every household to be prepared in case of emergency.
In the coming months, be sure to check our CEPOA website for updates and important preparedness tips and information. Go to www.cepoalososos.com under “Issues/Emergency Preparedness.”
