FEATURED PROGRAM

Phoenix Rising Logo (1)

The Phoenix Rising is a multicultural youth leadership program committed to empowering the next wave of leaders in emergency preparedness and response. Project Phoenix Rising offers student participants the chance to develop school and community leadership skills, gain the knowledge and tools needed to survive and recover from a disaster or emergency, and explore future careers in the world of emergency services and response.

FEATURED PROJECT

Project Lifeline, an initiative focused on creating systemic change in the Sonoma County 9-1-1 system to better serve an community members including immigrants, low-income residents, and people of color. Project Lifeline will engage in a two-pronged strategy that includes collecting and sharing residents' opinions, experiences, and fears about calling 9-1-1 with local EMS responders, and working with responders to understand and address these barriers. It will also inform and support underrepresented community members in navigating and engaging the 9-1-1 system promptly and effectively during an emergency. With its focus on building long-term trust and mutual respect between the community and EMS providers, a mentorship program for high school-aged students to support first responders in developing Spanish language skills will also be integrated into the project.
