Neighborhood Disaster Preparedness - Registry

Neighborhood Disaster Preparedness

As we are all aware, especially with this covid-19 pandemic, being prepared for disasters can save lives and reduce impact.  The following form is in conjunction with efforts of MPC-Ready and inline with CERT disaster preparation guidelines.  Its main purpose is to gain a basic understanding of all that live in the neighborhood so that we can respond more effectively incase of a disaster (earthquake, pandemic, fire, etc.)  

Working in conjunction with the MPC Ready, Ron Snow and Cindy Tipton have volunteered to be the Neighborhood Coordinators for University Park. We have created a map of our neighborhood and assigned “Block Coordinators.”  (see map inset) 
The Block Coordinators will reach out to the homes assigned to them during this pandemic and any future disaster for any help/assistance that may be needed.
We ask that you register your household in the form below. There is basic info like name, address, contact info and then there is additional data that can be useful in times of a disaster to identify those that may need help or those with useful skill sets.
We will create three binders with this information that will reside with three block coordinator volunteers (it is recommended to have hardcopy information in the event that internet/cell service is disrupted).
If you would like to be a Block Coordinator, or if you have any questions, please contact Ron or Cindy:

In a mass disaster, it is helpful to know skill sets that are nearby in case help is needed. Please help identify areas where members in your household could help.
In case of a disaster, is there someone that you would like contacted? List contact name, email, phone, and city. Should be a person several miles away.
Please identify if there are special concerns or circumstances that could be helpful to emergency workers if disaster occurs: This could include medical conditions, needed medications or equipment and what you would want a doctor or EMT to know.

UnivPark - Preparedness Map

As an aid in dividing up the University Park neighborhood, we are using a map provided by   Each of the areas, A thrugh L, has a volunteer.  This map then helps us distribute the households so that volunteers each have between 14 to 20 homes in which they help with communications and other volunteer actions.
