  • Assisting in developing a plan to improve Galetta residents’ awareness of the need to prepare for emergencies.
  • Surveying residents to determine the needs of the community for support during an emergency.
  • Determining the possible extent of ‘neighbours helping neighbours’ that could take place during an emergency

Once upon a time there were four individuals named EVERYBODY, SOMEBODY, ANYBODY and NOBODY.

There was an important job to be done and 

EVERYBODY was asked to do it.  

But EVERYBODY was sure SOMEBODY would do it.  

ANYBODY could have done it, but NOBODY did.  

SOMEBODY got angry about it because it was EVERYBODY'S job.  

EVERYBODY thought ANYBODY could do it, and NOBODY realized that EVERYBODY would not do it.  

It ended up that EVERYBODY blamed SOMEBODY and NOBODY did the job that ANYBODY could have done in the first place.
