RADIO NET & AVERT INTRODUCTION



Given limited SJPD resources burglaries continue to be a problem in Almaden. One way to reduce the probability in our neighborhoods is by implementing Neighborhood Watch (NW) programs where neighbors can help neighbors. The Radio Net and Almaden Valley Emergency Response Team (AVERT) are capabilities that are designed to augment what you do locally. We encourage everyone to take a look.
The Radio Net enables neighbors to efficiently coordinate in a neighborhood response (suspicious car, burglary in progress). Neighbors responding to neighbors is much faster (2-5 minutes vs > 15 minutes from SJPD). Furthermore, during an earthquake we may need to assist each other. AVERT (Almaden Valley Emergency Response Team) will also be introduced to enable interested volunteers to work together to address neighborhood needs while waiting for city services.
