Each neighborhood council should be sending one or two representatives to these meetings, generally held on the fourth Saturday of the month. If you are on a neighborhood council board or committee, and/or attend their meetings as a stakeholder, ask if your neighborhood council has a rep, and if not, ask why not.
We’ll work on finalizing the EP Plan outline for NCs to use when developing their individualized plan.

Neighborhood Council Emergency Preparedness Alliance (NCEPA)
The Neighborhood Council Emergency Preparedness Alliance (NCEPA) meets the 4th Saturday of every month from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, The NCEPA representatives hear from city department managers and their representatives regarding the city’s plans for coping with a variety of local and major emergencies. Members of various volunteer emergency groups have presented their roles in emergency preparedness. The one thing they all have stressed is the need for individual neighborhoods to prepare to be self-reliant for at least 7 days after a major disaster. The purpose of the NCEPA is to gather information and educate neighborhood councils about their responsibility to organize the communities they represent. Various tools are available to guide neighborhood council members and stakeholders about how to organize and prepare their neighborhoods.
