Hi Jeff - Where are you located in southern California?  Maybe we can collaborate on our efforts.  I am in the Inland Empire.  I will share all of the information I am gathering.

In the City of Commerce. I live in Hacienda Heights. I work with 6 Divisions of L.A County and have trained over 40 members in all Divisions in Cert for our Emergency Response Teams yet keeping the interest at the Mgmnt level is not an easy task.

Arizona DHS has been able to support the Arizona Coalition for Tomorrow (ACT) during an upcoming health fair, scheduled for Sept 29th. ACT has been providing health services in support of our local community for many years. In addition to providing an outstanding service to our local community this event also allows us to utilize some of our volunteers within the State. Utilization of personnel helps maintain support and motivation. I also manage HPP and PHEP grant funds for the state, this activity meets some of our mandatory measures for the federal government. I have included a link to ACT for your reference. Most communities have similar community support activities; to maintain support from management and members I would seek out activates that align with your capabilities. 

I'm also Southern California and am available to share what I know. Feel free to contact me anytime. We are just putting final touches on the City's first Neighborhood Safety & Disaster Fair next Saturday.

Hello Jefferey!

I'm located in the Inland Empire.  Judging by some of the responses, it looks like you've got a lot of resources locally from which to solicit insight.  If there is anything I can do to help just let me know.  Thx - Jim

Hi Jeffrey & Jim - It would be great if the 3 of us talk soon.  I am in the Inland Empire and am helping community & faith based organization get prepared for a disaster .  We have started a collaboration project with about 30 churches so far. Our goal is to have 5000 churches and community based orgs across the nation in the coalition.  Let's share information since we are all in the same general area of southern California.
