The Northeast L.A. Disaster Survival Task Force was born out of frustration from a group of community members that could not find disaster information for their neighborhood.
our mission was, if something happened in D.C. then, we would go to some secret location up in the mountains of Virginia. And so that was some interesting until I got home and told my wife about it and she goes, well, what about me?
Well actually Brock Long last week, said, “CERT on steroids.” You know, on how can we get a civil defense system back like we had in the 50’s, and get people involved, and get citizens trained in the skills they would need. This is exactly what you would be doing in setting up a town-level civil defense organization as a non-profit.
