Block Captain Orientation
Block Captains (BCs) are the heart of this program and are a crucial link between the NRG and the individual residents of your neighborhood. The role requires a responsible person with the time and interest to work as part of an emergency response team. Being at home during the day is not a pre-requisite. A Block Captain should have a reliable phone messaging system, access to emails, be highly responsible and committed to assisting the residents in their neighborhood.
Becoming a BC can be a very rewarding experience, as you visit and get to know your neighbors. BCs serve the important function of providing preparedness information and keeping people informed about emergency incidents that affect the community.
