EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

The leadership of the Mount Hermon Community organization is deeply committed to the safety and wellbeing of all residents.  To that end, it falls upon each of us individually to do what we can to make the community safer and to fully prepare for emergencies, large and small.  We live in an area that is served by a volunteer fire department that is second to none.   And yet, we must prepare as individuals to be the “first responder” when the circumstance calls for such.  Whether house fire or wildfire, earthquake, medical emergency, power outage, fallen tree or flood, each one of us can be a part of the Community Emergency Response Team that will make an important difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors.

In the case of Fire, Medical or Criminal activity, CALL 911.

For trees across roads, water main breaks and those things that Mount Hermon Association wants to respond to with efficiency, telephone the main number for Mount Hermon (831)335-4466.  During normal business hours, the telephone is staffed and the maintenance crew is instantly available by radio.  During off-hours, the main number is automated to immediately send a pager message to on-call personnel.  Don’t hang up!  Follow the automated instructions and leave a detailed message including a call back telephone number.  Stay off your telephone so you can receive the call back.  Leaving multiple messages ties up your phone.

The Mount Hermon Community wants to be of assistance with other types of emergencies.  Our volunteers can become over-worked with dead batteries, leaky pipes and ordinary maintenance chores that should be handled by paid professionals.  These are not emergencies.  If you do have an emergency, telephone one of us in the Community.  Neighbors help neighbors.
