Join The Team

When a disaster happens in the Echo Lake Community, a team of first responders will quickly address damage assessment, provide assistance and coordinate recovery resources. If you would like to train and become part of this community organization, please reach out to vicepresident@echolakecommunity.org .

There are many ways to help the community during a disaster. We are stronger because of the varied skills people bring to the event, however we are not merely a collection of willing participants. The response to any emergency requires a baseline of knowledge and organization. We have developed a robust emergency response plan based on best practices of other communities and tailored to our unique needs.

We adhere to the same structure used by all emergency responders in the nation. This provides maximum effectiveness to save lives, property and helps assure our coordination with outside services.

To assure all the components of a response work together as a team, we will be training and practicing in 2020, hopefully before a disaster happens.

Our Emergency Operation Center will have several active functions to maintain operations and provide medical aid as needed. In addition there will be field units operating in the community on the many local roads.
