Attention Greenbrae Hills Parents
The Navarro Neighborhood Response Group (NRG) is one of seven grassroots organizations working in Greenbrae to get our neighborhood ready to respond should disaster strike. Emergency services tell us that more than 70% of victims are rescued by neighbors before emergency personnel can arrive. Volunteer Block Captains will be distributing information packets, working to prepare neighbors for an emergency, and helping neighbors after an earthquake emergency. We are doing this with the full support of the Central Marin Fire Department, Central Marin Police Authority, City of Larkspur, Town of Corte Madera, coordinator and Advisory Committee.
You are part of the Navarro NRG if you live on: Eliseo (# 103-398), Corte Cayuga, Corte de Sabla, Bretano (#205-270), Via Barranca, Via La Paz ((#1-99), Corte Gracitas, Via Lerida, Via Navarro, Corte Toluca, and Corte Fedora.
This effort requires good communications, and we hope all parents will opt-in to our email list. To receive news about upcoming meetings and our progress, please send your name, email and street address to email@example.com.
To learn more go the boundaries of the other six Greenbrae Hills NRGs, and Marin NRGs in general, go to www.nrgmarin.org.
