The basic process of setting up an N2NEP in a neighborhood / community:
We find out what the biggest threats specific to each community and what is already in place.
We discuss with each community/city/county Emergency Response teams and find out what is needed and how we can facilitate better communication and more involvement and support from each community.
We then research and find out how much will it cost to launch this program. We then check with the local county or city officials if funds are already available for neighborhood training programs.
We encourage the neighborhoods to approach local sponsors and donors. (Under our registered non-profit all donations are tax deductible). Costs are kept to a minimum. We are motivated by a concern for the people, not making a big profit.
A unique handbook is created specific to each neighborhood. That handbook belongs to your neighborhood and then a meeting/workshop is arranged by you in your community, and we help to facilitate.
We ask for volunteer 'captains' from your community who want to help lead and sustain this locally and the neighborhood is divided into ‘quadrants’ overseen by the ‘captains’ .
We plan regular meetings & initially one of our staff will be in attendance for help and support and we will always be available to answer questions and offer suggestions.
Then - following the suggestions in the N2NEP local handbook, the community/ neighborhood keep this going.
Background on N2NEP
Neighbor-to-Neighbor Emergency Preparedness (N2NEP) is a practical, easy to follow outline of how to prepare local communities for emergencies. This handbook, that was co-authored by Judith Arnold in California, was funded by a generous grant from the State of California and supported by a volunteer organization:’ CVAN’: Community Volunteer Alert Network.
Due to the ever-present threats in California, the original handbook focuses primarily on earthquakes. The focus on this and the information in the Handbook is taken from several interviews from communities on how they initiated an effective Emergency Ready community that are active and have been affective for many years.
From this larger more detailed handbook, we localize a smaller handbook for each neighborhood, currently through Neighborhood Associations or Neighborhood Watch programs that are active within each community. Contacting the local Emergency Management and/or Response personnel and or volunteers in each City, County (Parish) and State is where we start to understand what priorities these officials feel needs to be focused on in each individual community under their purview for the protection and safety of each citizen.
The N2NEP’s goal is to assist local officials and actively communicate these needs to each person in their area and facilitating a united effort by all involved.
