The purpose of COPE is to build and prepare neighborhoods and prepare neighborhood teams for responding to major emergency situations. Equally beneficial, neighbors provide individual support to each other when needed. Experience has shown another plus – getting to know neighbors and enjoying their company. In case of emergencies, our neighbors are our closest families. While most of our neighborhoods are organized in a COPE Team, there are still a few that are not and due to normal attrition, there are also COPE Leaders missing, residents able to communicate with their neighbors and relay communications to and from their Zone Communicator in case of a major disaster. Physical strength is not a requirement just the ability to think clearly during an emergency. This position may be shared.
Join our group of neighborhood teams and leaders.
