Discover Palo Alto's Emergency Services Volunteer program! It is not a question of “if” but “when”. The challenging question is: Will you be prepared for tomorrow’s disasters? Meet and prepare your neighbors before disaster strikes.

From the official city site we read:

(…) “The mission of the Palo Alto Emergency Services Volunteers (ESV) is to: 1) provide supplemental resources to the professional first responders of the City and surrounding communities and 2) facilitate means for neighbors to help neighbors (including business and other entities).

The ESV organization supports the mission of the Palo Alto/Stanford Citizen Corps Council (CCC): “The mission of the Palo Alto/Stanford Citizen Corps is to harness the power of individuals, businesses, and organizations through education, training and volunteer service to make communities resilient, safe, strong and prepared to respond to and recover from threats of 1) natural disasters, 2) human-caused disasters, 3) crime, 4) public health emergencies, 5) terrorism, and 6) disasters of all kinds.”

The Emergency Services Volunteers nomenclature is an “umbrella” to include all City-sponsored emergency preparedness volunteer programs, such as ARES/RACES (ham radio), Block Preparedness Coordinators (BPC) & Neighborhood Preparedness Coordinators (NPCs), and the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers.

According to the Palo Alto Municipal Code (PAMC) Sec. 2.12.070, ESVs are a part of the City’s Emergency Organization: “All officers and employees of this city, together with those volunteer forces enrolled to aid them during an emergency, and all groups, organizations, and persons who may by agreement or operation of law … be charged with duties incident to the protection of life and property in the city during such emergency, shall constitute the emergency organization of the city of Palo Alto.” (emph. added)

The Palo Alto Office of Emergency Services (OES) is the sponsor of the ESV program. Because OES serves all City departments (including Public Safety (Police & Fire), Public Works, Community Services, etc.), ESVs may be deployed, at the discretion of OES, to function in various capacities to suit their requirements or the needs of our mutual aid partners, including Stanford University, Los Altos, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, NASA Ames Moffett Field, etc.” (…) See Source

The Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts

The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University is a vital and dynamic institution with a venerable history. Founded in 1891 along with the university, the historic museum was expanded and renamed in 1999 for lead donors Iris and B. Gerald Cantor. The Cantor’s encyclopedic collection spans 5,000 years, includes more than 44,000 artworks and beckons visitors to travel around the world and through time: from Africa to the Americas to Asia, from classical to contemporary.

With 24 galleries presenting selections from the collection and more than 20 special exhibitions each year, the Cantor serves Stanford’s academic community, draws art lovers from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond and attracts campus visitors from around the world.

Free admission, free tours, lectures, family activities plus changing exhibitions make the Cantor one of the most well-attended university art museums in the country and a great resource for teaching and research on campus. The Cantor is also famous for its outdoor sculpture, including the Rodin Sculpture Garden, modern and contemporary art across campus, and the Papua New Guinea Sculpture Garden
