Question: When do we go to our staging area?

Answer: Go to your staging area if your NET is activated by your telephone tree.  If there is an obvious disaster, such as an earthquake, that has probably disrupted the telephone lines, assume that your NET has been activated, and go to your staging area.  Take care of your family and immediate neighbors before going to your staging area, and look for problem areas on the way.

Question: If my NET captain hasn't shown up yet who is in charge?

Answer:  The first person to arrive is in charge until someone more willing or able arrives and takes over.  That's one reason we all need to know how to do all the jobs, especially if we are a small NET.

Question: If we suspect a hazardous materials spill, who should we call?

Answer:   (Who has an answer?)


Organizing volunteers is one of our most important tasks.  (Please share your ideas for organizing this  task.)
