Emergency Preparedness for Seniors & People with Disabilities
Resilient Cayuga, in partnership with Community Living Campaign and Cayuga Community Connectors, was awarded a $5,000 Community Investment Grant from SFPOA to educate the Cayuga community on Disaster Preparedness and GO BAG assembly for seniors and people with disabilities.
The goal of this project was to raise emergency preparedness awareness for Cayuga’s most vulnerable neighbors, to encourage relationships amount neighbors, and encourage people to sign-up for NERT training. In addition, this project aims to encourage neighbors to become active members of the Cayuga Improvement Association/Cayuga Connectors.
The outcome of the program will includes assembling and distributing 100+ GO BAGS to seniors and people with disabilities throughout the neighborhood. The contents are designed to help vulnerable residents shelter in place in the event of a disaster.This entire program was made possible by a SF Police Officers Association (SFPOA) grant to the Community Living Campaign. Participation by our Balboa HS JROTC is greatly appreciated.
