Your Neighborhood Captain (NC) is there to help coordinate volunteer activities that will make your neighborhood safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to any emergency situation. He/She can provide opportunities for people to participate in a range of measures to make their families, their homes, and their communities safer from the threats of crime, terrorism, and disasters of all kinds.
In the event of an emergency your NC will be mobilized and begin to organize your neighborhood to implement whatever course of action may be necessary. Your NC will make sure those with special needs (i.e. medication, special equipment, pets, etc) get the personalized attention they require during a crisis situation.
In the event of a Shelter in Place Order, your NC will be the ONLY person who can go pick up and deliver supplies to members of your neighborhood community (i.e., water, medications, baby formula etc).
Contact your Neighborhood Captain today. Make sure that they understand your special circumstances and needs during an emergency. The more we prepare in advance the better off we will be during the actual emergency.
