Network Goals:

  • To establish a team of “Secondary Responders” who will provide arts, entertainment, and respite activities during disasters.
  • To prepare cultural and community centers to act as evacuation centers.
  • To bring disaster training and resources into our region.
  • To secure grant money that supports disaster planning for local arts and cultural assets.
  • To assess and map regional cultural assets.
  • To connect local artists with disaster relief funds.


The Central Sierra Disaster Preparedness Network is open to anyone.
