Once you’ve made an emergency plan, built a kit and are aware of the hazards in your area, you may be ready to get involved by helping your community better prepare for disaster. Here are some suggestions on how to do that:
Request an emergency preparedness presentation for your church, business or neighborhood group. Complete and submit this speaker request form (coming soon) to our office.
Volunteer for the City of San José Office of Emergency Management to deliver emergency preparedness information yourself. These are usually quick 30 to 90 minute presentations you can give to schools, retirement homes and other small groups. Contact our department for more information at 408-794-7055.
San José Police Neighborhood Watch Program is another great resource for group meetings and offers valuable information regarding local crime prevention.
If you’re looking to volunteer in a more active way, opportunities exist with the following groups:
