As a medical volunteer in Katrina relief and a recent PANDA graduate (palo alto's CERT) I feel like even though I am prepared, I'm very concerned for my neighborhood. I don't think they're prepared, and PAN could help by encouraging the development of Block Captains, or at least encourage each neighbor know the emergency contact information and level of preparedness of their immediate next door and across-the-street neighbors.
