Burlingame Neighborhood Network:
The Burlingame Neighborhood Network encourages Burlingame residents to work cooperatively in neighborhood teams to prepare for disasters. In the process of getting better acquainted, 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 and in the end, improves life overall in our city.
It is important for every family and business to be prepared for local emergencies such as fire, flood or earthquake. After a major disaster, it is unlikely that emergency response services will be able to immediately respond to everyone’s needs, so it’s important to be prepared to take care of yourself and your family. Plan to be on your own for at least the first 72 hours.
