Berkeley Emergency Preparedness... If something happened to you in your home... would your neighbors know who to call?

Berkeley Emergency Preparedness... If something happened to you in your home... would your neighbors know who to call?

Carol and I have owned a home in Berkeley's Thousand Oaks Neighborhood for over twenty five years... but if something happened to us, our neighbors wouldn't know who to call!

I decided to create a Family Information Form so my neighbors would know our emergency contacts, and vice versa. Just click on Family Information Form to download the Adobe Acrobat file.

My thoughts... make several versions of the form - one would be very comprehensive and sent only to your emergency contacts; the other would have less sensitive information, and given to neighbors you trust.

Feel free to forward this link to your family and friends.

We're all in this together!

Here's the link to Berkeley's Office Of Emergency Services. Here's what they say on their web site.

"The Office of Emergency Services offers free training in emergency preparedness to anyone who lives or works in Berkeley. Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) classes include Basic Personal Preparedness, Disaster First Aid, Disaster Mental Health, Fire Suppression, Light Search and Rescue, Responding to Terrorism, and Shelter Operations. Classes are held at the Fire Department Training Center (997 Cedar Street) "

PS
At last night's Block Association meeting we learned something very important from the Fire Chief. Calls to 911 from your cell phone go to a dispatch center in Vallejo!

Program this number into your cell phone - 510-981-5911

It's a direct line to the Berkeley Fire/Police Dispatcher

I've given it the Quick Key of "F" (for Fire) on my Treo 700!
