All Friendly Area Neighbors (FAN) residents and business owners are invited to our quarterly neighborhood event.
Our quarterly neighborhood events are a chance to learn about current neighborhood issues and to meet other neighbors. If you would like time to discuss a specific topic, contact FAN co-chair, Margie James, email@example.com.
Details of this event and the program is available in the Spring 2018 edition of the Friendly Area Neighbors News.
This program educates community members about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area. It also trains them in basic disaster response skills. Based on this training, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT graduates are also encouraged to become part of a CERT field team in their neighborhood.
Residents interested in taking the free CERT training can call the City's Management Department at 541-682-5665 to sign up for the training. More information can be found online at www.eugene-cert.com.
Map Your Neighborhood is a two-hour training that residents conduct by gathering with their immediate neighbors. Groups learn nine essential steps to take immediately following a disaster. They also work to identify the skills and equipment each neighbor has that could be useful in a disaster. Additionally, they develop a neighborhood map identifying important features such as gas lines. The goal is to create a functional neighborhood team that would provide supports within the neighborhood until normal city services can be restored.
Map Your Neighborhood videos and training materials are available from the City by calling 541-682-5665 or can be found at https://www.eugene-or.gov/1177/Neighborhoods.
