Neighbors for Neighbors

Do stuff with and for your neighbors


I left Boston last September to move to Washington DC. It was not an easy choice, but I was presented with an awesome opportunity to bring my neighbor-centric approach to how the Federal Government engages and empowers citizens. It was an honor I could not pass up!

One my major projects involves developing the engagement, outreach, and community management strategy for FEMA's National Preparedness Online Community -

Today, It's my privilege to invite you to join! Pledge to prepare now by joining The National Preparedness Coalition now!

The National Preparedness Coalition Online Community is where people connect and collaborate on emergency preparedness. Use it to empower yourself to prepare and to coordinate preparedness activities with your family, neighbors, co-workers, and those with whom you may study or worship.

On the community you:

  • Get access to useful information to help you prepare
  • Get support and share best practices with over 20,000 members
  • Connect with FEMA personnel and others near you in the regional forums
  • Help others prepare and increase our resilience

Join the National Preparedness Coalition now.

I also recommend you check out:

  1. Boston's CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) Program. 
  2. Boston's Medical Reserve Corps

This is great!  In addition to joining CERT, perhaps you could encourage folks to join the Boston MRC (Medical Reserve Corps) at  They offer a ton of great (and free) trainings, and utilize volunteers in exercises and emergency responses in and around Boston.  Congratulations on your new position!
