The Bennett Valley Emergency Preparedness Program is organizing neighborhoods for preparedness.  The program includes:

  1. Selecting a safe shelter site
  2. Locating emergency storage for first aid supplies, shelter supplies, tools and equipment to be used when disaster strikes.
  3. Communications with walkie-talkies and Ham radio that will be a key component of preparedness when traditional forms of communications are not available.
  4. Each neighborhood will have a damage assessment team that will survey roads and bridges after a disaster.  These teams will remove debris and report on any downed power and communication lines.  They will assess bridges for damage and report on their safety.
  5. Neighborhood alert teams will report on injuries, damage to persons and property.
  6. Large Animal and pet rescue teams will help transfer animals to safety.
