T-CEP Teams


T-CEP is made up of volunteer teams ready to respond to a specific aspect of a disaster. To join our terrific and fun volunteers please call the hotline at 310-455-3000.

Neighborhood Network educates individual neighbor-hood groups on how to organize and prepare for an emergency. During an emergency, the T-CEP Neighborhood Network Liaison provides neighborhood leaders with accurate and up-to-date information directly from the Emergency Operation Center . To organize your neighborhood, call and request one of our step-by-step information packets.

Hotline Team operates the T-CEP hotline "rumor control" telephone bank and gathers and disseminates accurate information to the community during an emergency.
