CHRISTMAS TREE HILL NEIGHBORHOOD RESPONSE GROUP INFORMATION FOR RESIDENTS
Dear Residents of Christmas Tree Hill,
Disaster history highlights the fact that in a major disaster first responders and public safety officials are initially overwhelmed and that there is invariably a delay in the delivery of vitally needed aid and services. It is therefore important that CTH residents be as prepared as possible to be self-sufficient for anywhere from 2 to 5 days. Preparation is also becoming increasingly important to deal with PG&E power shutoffs. The mission of the CTH NRG is to assist residents to be prepared by providing information, education, resources, disaster drills and training, and to create an emergency response team of trained block captains who can be deployed to assist residents in the wake of a disaster. We urge you to take the steps below to prepare yourself, your family and your home, and to use the resources provided by CTH NRG and other disaster response organizations, like firesafemarin.organd readymarin.org.
Purchase a battery-operated AM/FM radio which should be tuned to AM 1330, Corte Madera’s emergency information radio station. Be sure to have spare batteries on hand.
Prepare a ‘Grab & Go’ bag for each member of your family and your pets. See Ready Marin and the Resources section of the CTH NRG website for the information you need to be prepared.
Know where your water and gas shut-off valves are and how to turn them off.
Make sure that you have enough supplies—food, water, medications, pet food, etc.—to shelter-in-place for at least 3-7 days.
Check the CTH NRG Block Map and list of Blocks and Block Captains to find out who your Block Captain (BC) and Zone Coordinator (ZC) are, where they reside, and their contact information. Your BC and ZC are your resources for information, please try to meet and get to know them. If your block has no BC, please consider volunteering.
