My name is Eden Slater and I am a 22 year old AmeriCorps community organizer for the City ofKnoxville. I am working on developing and implementing a disaster preparedness program on the neighborhood level. So far residents and emergency management/response teams have been very excited to work with the program and make it a great thing forKnoxville! My hope is to build community bonds, get neighbors prepared and relying on each other, and link residents to emergency personnel training and practices. If you have any incite into this project it would be greatly appreciated!
I look forward to being part of such an outstanding group!
Thanks for joining the community and introducing yourself. That's so great to hear things are going well for your preparedness efforts in Knoxville! Please check back in and let us know how things are going or if you have ideas you'd like to share or questions.
