During a disaster CCFD will have limited personnel and apparatus to provide emergency services. We thus strongly support the efforts of our local residents, particularly the Burlingame and Hillsborough Neighborhood Networks (BNN and HNN), to be trained, prepared and self-reliant during the most critical three to five days following an area-wide disaster.
BURLINGAME NEIGHBORHOOD NETWORK (BNN) encourages neighbors to connect with one another to build a sense of community, become informed about disaster preparedness and support one another during emergencies. Their sense of community fosters a “Neighborhood Watch” awareness that helps prevent crime. BNN hosts a citywide Disaster Preparedness Drill every fall. https://burlingamenetwork.org
HILLSBOROUGH NEIGHBORHOOD NETWORK (HNN) is a grass-roots group of residents collaborating to assist neighborhoods to get acquainted, informed and organized for emergency preparedness at the individual, neighborhood, and community level. Our objectives are to prepare neighborhoods to be self-sufficient in case of disaster, to promote a safer community, and to build communication within neighborhoods. Hillsborough residents can sign up for a monthly Emergency Prep Update email and find out who their Neighborhood Leads are by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org.
