The Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program (NEPP) is up and running through our Community Police Stations (CoPS), in cooperation with the Corporation of Delta and Delta Fire & Emergency Services. NEPP teaches:
Individuals and families how to become personally prepared for a minimum of 72 hours following a disaster
Neighbours how to plan and train as a neighbourhood to respond safely and effectively as organized teams during a disaster.
NEPP is available throughout Delta. Training sessions have been given in:
Utilities and Fire Suppression – by Delta Fire
First Aid – by St. Johns Ambulance
Light Urban Search and Rescue – by Surrey Search and Rescue
Communication and Transportation – by Delta Amateur Radio Society (DARS) and Delta Fire
Shelter and Care Giving – by Delta Emergency Social Services
Rapid Damage Assessment – by BC Housing Authority
Leadership – by Delta Police
Note: We are unable to provide the PowerPoint presentations given by outside agencies.
If you are interested in learning more about NEPP, contact your local CoPS office. If you would like to join a local NEPP group we will record your name and put you in touch with like-minded neighbours, or keep your name on file until others from your neighbourhood share their interest. Remember, "Failing to Prepare is Preparing to Fail!"
