Our Mission

The BERKELEY DISASTER PREPAREDNESS NEIGHBORHOOD NETWORK (BDPNN) is a volunteer organization formed in 2009 by neighborhood leaders to address the gap between the training and support capabilities of the City of Berkeley and the needs of neighborhoods preparing for disasters. The Network is a federal 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is registered with the State of California. Our Mission is to assist Berkeley households and neighborhoods to respond effectively to disasters by further developing organizational skills, human and material resources, and responsiveness by sharing experiences, seeking expert advice, enhanced training and information sharing.
