Organization Information

Mission Statement

We work to equitably support Berkeley neighborhoods and individuals who live or work in Berkeley to respond to large-scale emergencies. We do this through coalition building, bringing in outside expertise, and sharing experiences.

Description

The Berkeley Disaster Preparedness Neighborhood Network (BDPNN) - also known as "The Network" - is an all-volunteer organization formed in 2009 by neighborhood leaders to address the gap between the training and support capabilities of the City of Berkeley and the needs of neighborhoods preparing for disasters. The Network is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is registered with the State of California.

We put on quarterly meetings (generally the fifth Thursday of the month . . . check out our calendar!) on a variety of topics. We work with neighborhoods that are interested in organizing to better prepare for disasters, or ones that have fizzled and want to get going again. We help individuals connect with nearby groups, or those that simply want to better prepare their home. Once a year (in October) we work with others to put on an East Bay Community Emergency Prep Fair. And we work with Berkeley’s CERT program to get the word out about how to train to respond to a disaster.

Interested? We’re always looking for board members and volunteers. Come to our next meeting and let us know, or send us an email at info@bdpnnetwork.org.
