WE HAD FUN AT THE FALL FESTIVAL!

October 2, 2022

Terri, Carolyn and other PNEC volunteers worked throughout the day handing out hundreds of pieces of preparedness educational materials. Additionally, they signed up 35+ new community members to receive regular preparedness updates, signed up one new neighborhood lead and two new Ham Radio Operators. All in all, it was a very successful day in helping our community to be better prepared. 

VOLUNTEERS HONORED

During National Preparedness Month

September 20, 2022

At the Sept. 20 Poway City Council meeting, volunteers from three Poway organizations were recognized for helping our community be better prepared for emergencies, as well as being ready to serve in emergencies, as part of National Preparedness Month.


“These teams work hard all year long,” said Mayor Steve Vaus about Poway Neighborhood Emergency Corps and Poway Fire Safe Council (PNEC), led by Terri Sorensen, Poway’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), led by Susy Turnbull, and Poway Auxiliary Communications Team (PACT), represented by Mike Binder.

The organizations host and attend numerous community events to remind residents it is their responsibility to be prepared, including the PNEC’s annual Emergency Safety Fair, Sheriff’s National Night Out, and Poway Fire department’s open house.

Thank you to the San Diego Fire Foundation for the generous grant of $6,000. One of the many uses of this funding is to distribute emergency go-kits with supplies to residents of Poway to prepare  for emergencies.
