On February 26th, as a result of years of community organizing, the Board of Supervisors accepted 60 out of 63 community-supported recommendations for changes to emergency preparedness trainings under the Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) funding.

On Tuesday March 12th, Supervisors have the opportunity to take the next steps in making a community-led vision for safety and disaster response a reality. The Alameda County Sheriff is fighting tooth and nail to sabotage the path forward for community-supported emergency preparedness. Let’s continue to work with—and push!—our Supervisors to make sure we secure a future for common-sense public safety policy in our county. Let's keep winning. Join us!

More about the upcoming Board Meeting:
On March 12th, Supervisors will be discussing the UASI Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) - an agreement between other Bay Area cities and counties that informs funding and training exercises. The request put forth by the Sheriff is to renew the MOU while reversing all the decisions made by the Supervisors in the last year and to continue Urban Shield. We will be there to support and reinforce the County's decisions to pave a new path forward for disaster preparedness without Urban Shield.

It's time for Supervisors to make county-led community emergency preparedness a reality! This is an exciting moment where we can make community-based emergency preparedness priorities a reality! We will continue to work with Supervisors to implement their decisions and make sure they walk the talk of ending Urban Shield as we demand they amend or reject the MOU if it still includes Urban Shield.
