Emergency Preparedness

By providing information about emergency preparedness, our goal isĀ  to educate and empower grassroots organizers to become first responders and reduce the long-term risk to human life and property from man-made and natural disasters.

Your neighbors, friends and coworkers will play key roles in determining your ability to bounce back after a disaster. For an example, listen to this story from National Public Radio, The Key To Disaster Survival? Friends And Neighbors by Shankar Vedantam.

Hazards and Resource Maps

The maps at right show resources (fire stations, hospitals, evacuation routes, etc.) and hazards (faults, flood plains, landslide areas, etc.) for the NWNW coalition area. These are not final; PBEM has collected feedback from neighbors, and will review the maps. We’ll post the updated versions when they are available. Thanks to all of you who gave your input to make these maps more comprehensive.
