Join or form your Neighborhood Disaster Response Team
During a regional disaster, the fire department isn’t coming.
You and your neighbors will be the first responders in your communities for hours, days, maybe even weeks until the professionals become available.
Is your team ready?
The Neighborhood Team Program (NTP) is designed to make it easy for perspective Neighborhood Team Leaders to get started creating their Neighborhood Disaster Response Teams by combining the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and Ready Your LA Neighborhood (RYLAN) / Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) training programs with step-by-step guides and other short (2-4 pages) and easy to follow documentation.
NTP gives our CERT Coordinators a way to reach out to people in the neighborhood who are interested in stepping up as Team Leaders and gives them both a standardized framework of guidelines to work toward the goal of setting up self-sufficient teams.
NTP is primarily grassroots in origin, bottom up in nature with CERT Coordinators mostly there to provide guidance through experience and training.
Don’t have a team?
The Neighborhood Team Program is designed to give you the resources you need to quickly form your own Neighborhood Disaster Response Team.
We provide step-by-step guides, a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) Guide, and guidance from a CERT Coordinator to get you started.
