This committee is dedicated to keeping the North Hills West Stakeholders up to date on items that they may need, to prepare for an Earthquake or any other type of disaster we may encounter. This is a great Committee to join and learn as much as you want about this topic. The information table at every meeting always has a variety of the latest information available, as well as sources for additional information. Training, usually free, or at most very low cost, is available in conjunction with several specialized groups. Including everything from CPR to Pet First Aid, to how to economically prepare for prolonged infrastructure damage. We support Neighborhood Watch groups and work with other Neighborhood Councils towards common goals. While this sometimes means we are volunteering outside of our physical area, when a disaster of whatever shape it takes happens, it will certainly not recognize any borders, and we will need to rely upon those partners.
