RADIO TRAINING AND SUPPLIES IMAGE

You are invited to the next Neighborhood Response Group Block Captain Orientation! 
 
Learn more about what volunteer Block Captains can do in their neighborhoods to improve community resilience, prepare for and respond to emergencies and natural disasters. We’ll share resources you can connect to, ways to organize, and more. Hope you can join us!


What is the role of a Block Captain?
When disasters happen and people need help and assistance, neighbors turn to neighbors. Block Captains are volunteer neighbors who help organize, collect shared information, reach out to new neighbors and can 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. Even if you only have 5 minutes, there’s something we can all do to help our neighborhoods become more resilient.
 
When: Thursday, October 26, 2023
Time: 5 - 6pm PDT 
Location: Public Safety Building, 1 Hamilton Drive, Mill Valley, CA


Join the Southern Marin Fire District’s Neighborhood Response Group Coordinator for a 30 minute orientation to our emergency prep volunteer program. Learn more about:

  • The Neighborhood Response Group program 
  • Steps you can take to become better prepared 
  • Basic two-way radio training
 
No registration required, but please arrive on time at 5 p.m. for the orientation or 5:30 p.m. for the radio training.
