EPH was started in 2021 by Indigo Perry, Lynn Stanton, and Lyn Van Tighem, who have worked in the nonprofit sector for a combined total of 60+ years. They noticed that seniors weren’t getting the help they needed to be prepared for the next emergency – which could be right around the corner.
Formed to reach older adults, EPH provides senior-centered emergency education and resources to help them get prepared, and stay prepared.
Response from our residents has been overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic. Many have expressed appreciation for the attention to their safety, the go-bag supplies and comprehensive emergency information, and the opportunity to connect with their local first responders. We are grateful to Emergency Prep Help for providing this valuable service to help our residents stay safe.

Indigo, Lyn, and Lynn met years ago while working at COTS, a leading homeless services provider in the North Bay. In fact, each of them served as COTS’ Volunteer Coordinator at different times in their careers. Over the years, their passion for service kept them working in the nonprofit sector and they continued to cross paths, becoming good friends in addition to professional colleagues.
Get Prepared. Stay Prepared.
