Burlingame Neighborhood Network

Building Community Resilience

When a major earthquake occurs in our city, emergency responders warn that we’ll be on our own for three to seven days. Studies have found that personal ties among community members improve survival during a disaster and recovery afterward. The Burlingame Neighborhood Network encourages residents to get to know one another and work together to prepare for disasters. We can help you get started, get prepared and get trained. 

We invite you to organize a Neighborhood Network in your area. For information on what to do in the immediate aftermath of a disaster, click here.

Burlingame Disaster Survival Drill

More than 300 residents in dozens of neighborhood groups participated in our 9th annual Burlingame Disaster Survival Drill on October 9, 2021, along with local police officers, firefighters and Ham radio operators. The drill returned to an in-person format with neighbors observing county health protocols as they patrolled local streets looking for “incidents” describing emergency situations such as downed power lines and collapsed houses.
