COPE Neighborhood Leaders
The gathering of neighbors, to understand their risks and work together to minimize the disruption to their community can change the way disasters effect their families. Meeting neighbors and sharing expertise, knowledge, and critical needs with those who are in the best position to help in a disaster is the essence of community. By working together, you are better prepared, especially when first responders may not be able to meet the demands for services due to the scope of the disaster.
The role of the COPE Neighborhood Leader is to provide COPE program guidance and emergency preparedness information to their neighborhood team, 10 to 20 residences. In this role, they represent their neighborhood within the COPE community and serve as a point person to their COPE Community Leader and local first responders, as needed. They are encouraged to have at least one Co-Neighborhood Leader to assist them. You can find out more about being a leader and suggested steps to organize neighbors in our Neighborhood and Community Leader Handbook CLICK HERE and by watching our training video CLICK HERE.
The success of the program and emergency preparedness on the residential level is dependent on having Neighborhood Leaders throughout the Town of Windsor. We invite you to join our team to help our community be bettered prepared.
