HRA Emergency Preparedness Group The impetus for forming this committee came from September 11th. However, the goal of having such a group is to work on community preparedness for any type of emergency, not just potential terrorist threats. The committee will be meeting once every other month, unless there is a specific reason to meet more frequently. Contact: Mia Gardiner, email: miagard [at] aol.com
