[ARCHIVED] You're Invited To Attend The NRG Block Captain Orientation On December 15, 2022

NRG Block Captain Orientation December 15, 2022 Meeting image

When disasters happen and people need help and assistance, neighbors turn to neighbors. Connect now with the people around you and don’t wait until disaster strikes to meet each other.

Know your neighbors

The most important step you can take to get through times of disaster and stress is to connect. Neighbors who know each other will help each other when there is a need.

A Neighborhood Response Group (NRG) can be 2 households or a group of 10-15. They could be homes on your street or a floor in your apartment building.

Take this opportunity to knock on some doors, introduce yourself and begin forming your Neighborhood Response Group.

A few block captains can help steer the ship

A Neighborhood Response Group benefits from a few Block Captains (or coordinators) who volunteer to help organize meetings, collect shared information, reach out to new neighbors and participate in preparedness training. In the event of an emergency, it’s likely not everyone will be home at the same time, so the more people who know what to do, the better. 

Remember it’s not a lifetime commitment and Block Captains can rotate.

Learn how to help neighbors prepare for disasters with the Neighborhood Response Group! 

The next Southern Marin Neighborhood Response Group Block Captain Orientation will be held on Thursday, December 15th at 5pm on Zoom. Feel free to invite your neighbors and new Block Captains! We'll cover the basics of the Neighborhood Response Group program and how you can help your neighbors before, during, and after disasters. Hope to see you there! 

When: Thursday, December 15th at 5pm 

Where: Zoom. Please register in advance:
