The Coastside Emergency Action Program is a disaster preparedness committee bringing all key Half Moon Bay area coastside organizations to the table in order to sufficiently prepare for a disaster. In the event of a disaster, the coastside community would have to be self sufficient for the first 48 hours, at least.
This committee is the only VOAD (Volunteers Active in Disaster) in San Mateo County and has been dubbed "The Trail Blazers" by the state of California.
Committee Chair: Charise McHugh
Meets: First Friday of the month at 9:30am
Coastside Emergency Operations Center, 537 Kelly Avenue, Half Moon Bay
