2013 Community Conversation – Emergency Preparedness

Building Neighborhood Networks

Redmond Neighborhood Network and Redmond Ready
Meet with Neighborhoods for a 2013 Community Conversation

Have you thought about how you would respond to a long-term disaster such as those experienced by the East Coast? How about how your neighborhood will respond?
This year’s Neighborhood Network series is an opportunity to work with neighbors and evaluate Redmond’s preparedness, neighborhood by neighborhood.

The Redmond Neighborhood Network series runs from March through May with three neighborhood events to meet with neighborhoods and share conversation. The Police Department’s Office of Emergency Management will provide a brief Redmond Ready workshop at each of the three events to help participants be informed regarding disaster/emergency preparedness and to be Redmond Ready.

The events take place in the neighborhoods from 6:00pm to 7:30pm and include light refreshments:
March 20: Downtown, Bear Creek, and Southeast Redmond neighborhoods at City Hall, 15670 NE 85th Street;
April 17: Education Hill, North Redmond, and Sammamish Valley neighborhoods at Horace Mann Elementary, 17001 NE 104th Street; and
May 15: Grass Lawn, Idylwood, Overlake, and Willows/Rose Hill neighborhoods at Audubon Elementary, 3045 180th Avenue NE.

Redmond’s Neighborhood Network provides the community, City officials and staff opportunities to check in on an annual basis. Participants meet City officials, learn about City programs and projects, and discuss their respective neighborhood plan including policies, code, and priority neighborhood projects.
