Resilient Diamond Heights Workgroup Meeting and Dinner May 23

Our Resilient Diamond Heights Workgroup has been meeting for 9 years to work with neighborhood organizations and residents to prepare for that big earthquake in our future and for local emergencies. Please attend to learn how you can become involved.

Resilient Diamond Heights Workgroup Meeting

Tuesday, May 23rd, 6 pm dinner – sandwiches and salads, meeting at 6:30 pm 

St. Aidan’s Church, upper level, 101 Gold Mine Drive at Diamond Heights Blvd. 

Please reply to me betsy.eddy@gmail.com if you plan to attend so that we will have plenty of food. 

Parking available across the street in the parking lot next to Safeway 

Please invite those who may be interested in our important planning for Diamond Heights. 

On the 23rd, we will present the scope of work for two of our projects:

  • Planning for the Neighborhood Support Center at St. Aidan’s Church that will serve as an important meeting place to gather and share information after a disaster. We are working with Daniel Homsey, Director of the Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN), and his Resilient San Francisco projects to design this project based on a handbook developed in New Zealand after the destructive earthquakes there in 2011.
  • Creation of a disaster preparedness strategy for Diamond Heights. This initiative will focus on identifying the vulnerable populations in our community, what their preparedness needs and goals are and how to help them achieve them. Resilient Diamond Heights will work with the Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN), the Departments of Public Health, Human Services, Emergency Management and the American Red Cross on this effort. 

We are really excited to invite you to join us in this important mission and look forward to seeing you on May 23rd. 

Betsy for the DHCA and Resilient Diamond Heights Team
