Community Involvement

NEIGHBORHOOD NETWORKS

During a disaster CCFD will have limited personnel and apparatus to provide emergency services. We thus strongly support the efforts of our local residents, particularly the Burlingame and Hillsborough Neighborhood Networks (BNN and HNN), to be trained, prepared and self-reliant during the most critical three to five days following an area-wide disaster.

BURLINGAME NEIGHBORHOOD NETWORK (BNN) encourages Burlingame citizens to work cooperatively in neighborhood teams to prepare for disasters. In the process of getting BNN Bannerbetteracquainted, neighbors are inspired to plan other events such as block parties and holiday get-togethers. Their sense of community fosters a “Neighborhood Watch” awareness that helps prevent crime.

HILLSBOROUGH NEIGHBORHOOD NETWORK (HNN) is a grass-roots group of residents collaborating to assist neighborhoods to get acquainted, informed and organized for emergency preparedness at the individual, neighborhood, and community level. Our objectives are to prepare neighborhoods to be self-sufficient in case of disaster, to promote a safer community, and to build communication within neighborhoods. Hillsborough residents can sign up for a monthly Emergency Prep Update email and find out who their Neighborhood Leads are by contacting: hnn@hillsborough.net.

CCFD also offers several classes to help citizens become better trained and prepared to be self-reliant. These include the 20-hour Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training , the two-hour Get Ready training , plus Basic First Aid and CPR training.
