VPR Overview

Since 2012, the NEN has been prototyping a new community disaster resilience system here in San Francisco. A key objective was identifying a key motivator to keep neighborhood stakeholders at the table on a sustained basis and for hundreds of hours of engagement.

The resounding answering was ensuring the health and wellbeing of vulnerable populations.

The goal of this working group will be to design and implement a year-long program development strategy which will generate the following…

  • A definition of what a “prepared” vulnerable resident looks like
  • How can residents, and their surrounding communities, achieve this condition
  • How can we, the disaster resilience community, support their efforts
