Mont Marin / San Rafael Park Neighborhood Association
Neighborhood Response Team
Mont Marin / San Rafael Park Neighborhood Association residents are invited to participate in our volunteer effort to improve personal & family disaster preparedness by attending our regular Neighborhood ResponseTeam meetings.
With the support of San Rafael Office of Emergency Services, Marinwood Fire Department, County Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) and more, we have tentatively sectored our homeowners association's neighborhood into easily walked zones that will be assigned to local resident ‘Block Captains’.
These folks will have attended some preparedness classes, and will
- meet neighbors near their own homes,
- pass out helpful preparedness handouts,
- learn what your family’s special needs and contact information that might be in case of a disaster.
They will do their best to check on your home if there is a Quake or other disaster – to see what help you might need. That information would be routed as quickly as possible to available first responders.
Although some of us have taken CERT classes or similar training – we are not firefighters nor paramedics. We are your neighbors, and
WE NEED MANY MORE NEIGHBORS – just like you –
TO BECOME A PART OF OUR EFFORT.
Not all of our ‘block areas’ are yet assigned – so please do look at the map above, and let us know where you live, and if you might be able to help this neighborhood effort. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions, you can all John Rojas, MMSRPNA President, at 415-479-9229, or Frank Cox, organizing volunteer at 415-472-3764.
Our next meeting is:
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st, 2016 7- 8:30pm
At the Senior Access Center, 70 Skyview Terrace, SR CA, 94903
Email us and let us know if you can come!
