Emergency & Disaster Tips

Free Community CORE Classes***
Do you know what to do in the event of an earthquake, fire, flood, chemical accident or other emergency situation? Are you and your neighbors prepared to be on your own for seven to 10 days after a major disaster
CORE is a free training program for individuals, neighborhood groups and community-based organizations in Oakland. The underlying premise is that a major disaster will overwhelm first responders leaving many citizens on their own for the first seven to 10 days after the emergency.
CORE teaches self-reliance skills and helps neighborhoods establish response teams to take care of the neighborhood until professional emergency personnel arrive.
We are lucky enough to have one of the CORE trainers in our neighborhood… If you are interested in setting up or joining a neighborhood CORE class, please reach out to Jeff Morelli directly to find out about scheduling, during the day, at 510-333-3650

Emergency Water Storage
If you are interested in a home storage resource for your emergency water supply, Jeff has brand new food grade plastic 55 gallon drums ideal for your emergency water supply. These are made of a specific plastic designed not to leach into the water as is the case with typical name brand “spring water’ bottles which break down in a short period of time.
After a major disaster water will be the number one commodity. You should plan on 2 gallons per person per day for a period of 10 days at a minimum. More is better to avoid having to stand in a line for hours to get a couple of gallons as was the case back east from hurricane Sandy.
If you wait until after a disaster occurs to take action,it’s too late. Barrels are $85.00 each. Please contact Jeff at 510-333-3650 during the day.
