What is a Block Action Team?

--- News and Events

The Block Action Team (BAT) Program, an initiative of Los Altos Mountain View Community Foundation (LAMV-CF), improves community preparedness levels and strengthens our ability to respond to disasters. 
While many regular BAT activities have been suspended during the current crisis, we encourage you to get to know each other, share resources safely, and create safer and more resilient neighborhoods. 
BATs are also aligned with Neighborhood Watch for crime prevention and with Community Emergency Response Team members (CERTs) and “HAM” radio operators to prepare for emergencies.
Three neighborhood drills were held in 2022 with over 75 participants practicing their skills and being ready to support Los Altos in an emergency and are being planned for this year. If you would like to make sure you are getting the latest information,  please make sure you registered in the Resilient Los Altos Member Data Base.
BAT Leader training classes have resumed on Zoom, beginning May 2023. Please check the schedules and register for a free session today.


Inspiration Session – Building Community in Neighborhoods

Would you like to know your neighbors better and build trust among the people in your neighborhood?  Bring your questions and hear suggestions from a panel of long-time neighborhood leaders. They will talk about the challenges, lessons learned and best practices in having fun social events, being safe, and building resilience in your neighborhood.

Sponsored by Resilient Los Altos, an organization of volunteer groups that work to make Los Altos residents better able to recover from everything from life’s “ups and down” to major emergencies.  

This is a FREE event and is open to the public.  Invite your friends. There will be an information/resource table and free raffle of emergency supplies.

No sign-ups or RSVPs necessary.  Come as you are!

Oct. 17     7:00pm – 8:30pm       Los Altos Library Orchard Room
