City of Palo Alto | Emergency Preparedness Activities

As a new member of the community City of Palo Alto Emergency Services Volunteers I have become part (in a modest manner) of the first rate and friendly team with Director of Emergency Services Ken Dueker and the ever friendly Nathan Rainey Emergency Services Coordinator and so many other devoted people!

The Palo Alto Office of Emergency Services (OES) event: Seventh annual Community Partnership Awards Ceremony, Keynote and Reception. Held on Thursday, January 14, 2016 in the City of Palo Alto Council Chambers.

The City of Palo Alto has partnered with the community to form the Emergency Services Volunteer (ESV) program as a coordinating structure for the Block Preparedness Coordinator (BPC), Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Amateur Radio (ham radio), Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) and the Community Logistics Team. The Emergency Services Volunteers nomenclature is an “umbrella” to include all City-sponsored emergency preparedness volunteer programs, such as ARES/RACES (ham radio), Block Preparedness Coordinators (BPC) & Neighborhood Preparedness Coordinators (NPCs), and the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers.
