Send an email to the Board of Supervisors asking them to stand their ground and ask UASI to fund what we want and need in a disaster preparedness exercise.

Following a final meeting of the Ad-Hoc Committeewith the Alameda County Sheriff's Department, the committee was informed that the Supervisors will be asked to accept a UASI MOU without several approved changes at their March 12th board meeting.

The Committee was also told Bay Area UASI, the Homeland Security entity that doles out disaster preparedness funds, would not further consider any Alameda County requests at its March 14th meeting.

Published guidelines from both Bay Area UASI and FEMA/DHS do not require the use of the name "Urban Shield", having a vendor expo, or SWAT deployments, which are some of the changes refused by the Sheriff's Dept.
