How do I become a member?

Any nonprofit, faith-based, or community-based group or organization in one of our six represented neighborhoods (Sea Gate, Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Manhattan Beach, Gravesend, and Bensonhurst) with a willingness to help the community prepare for, and respond to, local emergencies and disasters is eligible to join. We also accept – on a case-by-case basis – organizations located in an immediately adjacent neighborhood with a willingness to help the six neighborhoods that we represent.
