The role of the Commission is to assist the City of Mill Valley to prepare our businesses, residents and schools for a natural disaster by developing risk awareness, providing safety and risk mitigation education and by advocating the need for ongoing emergency and disaster preparedness. The Commission also provides recommendations and support to the City on aspects of disaster impact mitigation, response planning, and recovery processes.
Members focus on organizing community groups, including residential neighborhood associations, schools and businesses. They promote Community Emergency Response Training and work to help educate residents on ways to be self-sufficient during a disaster. Their emergency preparedness handbook ("P.R.E.P." - Personal Responsibility for Emergency Preparedness) has been distributed to all households in Mill Valley. Additional copies can be obtained at City Hall or the City Public Safety Building.
