Vial of Life
Seniors and adults with disabilities who sign up for this no-cost program will be given a magnetic plastic container that holds specific information on the individual's medical history. This information speaks for the individual if the individual cannot. Should the paramedics be called in an emergency situation, they use the information in the box to save precious time in providing medical assistance.

NEST: Neighborhood Emergency Support Team
A disaster can be a scary experience for anyone. Imagine what it would be like for those of our neighbors who have either temporary or long term mobility issues; such an event could be especially terrifying. The aim of the NEST program is to provide those residents with assistance from their neighbors if our first-responders are unable to respond during a disaster.
This DMCC program will match each participant with two of their neighbors who will help them take simple steps to plan ahead for disasters, help the participants make decisions should a disaster occur, call their emergency contacts, and help them with their pre-arranged evacuation plan if needed.

Many Del Mar residents have worried that we are not really prepared should a disaster strike. Past DMCC Board Member Carol Kerridge has created the "Are You Ready Del Mar?" presentation so you and your neighbors can learn how to work together to make your home and neighborhood more safe. The program includes: understanding the risks here in Del Mar; how to prepare in advance to minimize damage; what simple supplies to have on hand; & what to do if a disaster actually occurs. Please see presentation video above.
