Neighborhood Disaster Plan


The Southeast Neighbors Disaster Plan is almost a completed project at least in a final draft form. The next steps will be to complete our asset and team mapping and engage “block captains” to build additional capacity within the SE neighborhood. By doing so, we are not only increasing the awareness of the plan within the neighborhood but within our community.
