On March 1, 2023, the Southern Marin Fire Protection District is pleased to announce the launch of a new website for the Southern Marin Neighborhood Response Group (NRG) program, www.southernmarinnrg.org.
The NRG program is a neighbors-helping-neighbors effort that helps connect individuals and neighborhoods to resources, education, and training that will help them to prepare for and respond to emergencies and disasters. The recent, abnormal Winter weather the region experienced was a reminder of the need for individuals to support each other, with volunteers stepping up to help sandbag, check on neighbors during power outages, and share resources.
The new site is an evolution of the original nrgmillvalley.org website and was developed with the whole Southern Marin community in mind. With easy, clear navigation, the site contains vital information for individuals and volunteers on how to prepare for and respond to emergencies and disasters. Raising awareness of the risks and resources in our district will help to build community resilience, bettering our outcomes after disasters.
“In a disaster, some of the first people who can help are your neighbors. Our goal is to support our community by creating connections, sharing resources, and providing access to emergency preparedness training,” said Leah Curtis, Southern Marin NRG Coordinator.
The new site enhances and simplifies the user experience, enabling the public to easily find where their neighborhood fits into the NRG program and provides realistic steps they can take to better prepare together. We extend our sincere gratitude to the volunteers who have dedicated their time and skills to help grow the program to where it is today.
