Site Information
The purpose of this site is to help insure that the needs and concerns of vulnerable populations are addressed in the area of emergency preparedness and response. To achieve this, community-based organizations must be more fully integrated into emergency management. Community-based organizations are often the best resource for a particular population. They bring a level of expertise and awareness of the community that is not often possible with the larger, traditional emergency service providers.
To forward this goal, this site supports and focuses on California entities known as Community Collaborative Groups (CCGs). These groups bring together community agencies serving vulnerable populations. In California, repeated earthquakes, fires, floods, hazardous material spills and other emergencies have provided the opportunity to develop, refine and test and subsequently validate the important role of the Community Collaborative Groups
