One of the weekend posts on SurvivalBlog was read is a from the perspective of a CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) member/leader and a Search & Rescue Volunteer in our local community. “A Community Action Plan” by ShepardFarmerGeek simplifies an often challenging topic. It would also make a great working template for groups to get organized in an emergency situation. It could be adapted to any size community. His strategies will definitely be added to improve our neighborhood plan.
It’s a great idea to bring a copy of this plan to a Neighborhood Watch if only to bring up the topic of preparedness and evaluate the resourcefulness of your neighbors. If you don’t have a Neighborhood Watch, check with your local police department for information on how to get one started. CERT is also a great way to help others in your community get prepared.
