Community Development: Disaster Recovery
Summary: Funding is to be used to purchase emergency supply items for the City of Huntington Beach.
Our Club is proud to be participating in an inaugural program in our community for Emergency Preparedness. Although we all hope that nothing happens, Huntington Beach is a high risk community with two strong flood zones, a higher likeliness of earthquakes and damage, and a higher risk of a Tsunami than in other communities. The VOAD Program has been designed so that groups like ours can step into action to help with emergency supplies, food, and medical care in the event something does happen. We have set up an active committee which is working with the City of Huntington Beach, and other organizations, to develop this plan in more detail and work through the appropriate logistics. We propose a budget of $2,270 in order to purchase a combination of emergency supplies, kits, and help the City stock "long shelf life" food items, emergency water packets, and first aid supplies in chosen Community locations.
This project is "Paid". This means that the funds from the district have been issued. This project is now being ready for implementation. When this is done, a report needs to be uploaded on the project page and the "Reported" button needs to be clicked, then the status of the project will be changed to "Reported".
