The Menlo Park Fire District Community Crisis Management program is governed by an Advisory Board, comprised of elected volunteers from across the fire district. The Advisory Board is supported by six working committees, tasked with executing the (District approved) plans adopted by the Board. Our mission is "To establish and maintain a cadre of trained and equipped Volunteers, to provide initial neighborhood disaster response and support the District's emergency operations plan, as envisioned by the Federal CERT program."

Meetings of the Advisory Board are open to the public and listed on our home page calendar. 

Minutes of meetings and other Board documents are available online.
