Please follow the wise leadership being provided by the Town of Atherton and the City of Palo Alto.
1 - Fully activate your Emergency Operations Center,
2 - Accept responsibility for the hundreds of CERTs already trained, at no expense to the City, by our Fire District and the hundreds more Menlo Park residents who have joined with them to attempt to complete a citizen led effort to provide city-wide coverage of every residence,
3 - Contribute to the recruitment of more Block and Area Coordinators by both strongly endorsing this effort and financially supporting it,
4- Immediately integrate that rapidly growing network of Area and Block Coordinators into your EOC by giving them a chain of command headed by a senior city manager who has significant Incident Response System training and experience and who respects the value of these volunteers.
