The neighborhood emergency preparedness group of eastern Daleys Scenic Park and southern La Loma Park
Our neighborhood straddles the Hayward Fault. In case of a disaster, we will be without fire, police, emergency medical, and other basic government services for several days. In January 2006, we formed the Northside EmPrep group to prepare ourselves for dealing with a major earthquake or other disasters and provide essential services to each other during this difficult period.
Explore this website and find out what you can do in your householdand what we are doing together as a neighborhoodto be prepared.
Here are the communal and personal emercency supply lists recommended by the Northside Emprep First Aid/Medical Team. Please read and provide feedback.
