Neighborhood Response Groups


Neighborhood response groups, or NRGs, are groups of neighbors that work together to improve their community's disaster preparedness and resiliency. Neighborhood response groups (NRGs) can take many forms, but ultimately exist to help their neighbors prepare for and respond to an emergency. Everyone has something they can contribute. Working together, everyone has a role in keeping San Rafael safe.

Disaster Preparedness and Neighborhood Response Groups in San Rafael

Building NRGs Workshop

On August 14th, 2019 over 70 community members came together to learn how to build and maintain neighborhood response groups. The workshop provided an overview of existing structures and suggestions for how local groups can form and fit into the larger system and plans. Participants worked in small groups to identify resources, develop structure and plan their next steps. Five community disaster preparedness leaders shared their success stories to inspire and inform fellow community members.
