Neighborhood Emergency Planning
BaRN stands for Building a Resilient Neighborhood. It's a plan that can be implemented by an HOA or a neighborhood to help ensure that neighbors are 'watched out for' in case of an emergency such as a power outage during extreme heat. This link: BaRN proposal, is an outline of what it would take to accomplish such a plan for your neighborhood.

There is no shooting allowed near homes or in Tucson Mountain Park. One incident of a shot fired into a home has occurred. If you see or hear illegal shooting from a vehicle, safely try to get the license plate number and call 911 immediately. If you hear or see illegal shooters on foot, call 911 immediately to report. GPANA is working with the Pima County Parks Department to investigate and provide extra patrols in the area. Also, GPANA is working with the Pima County Parks Department to post educational signs in the area (step one in the process to reduce illegal shooting). Please email GPANASEC@gmail.com to let us know if you have illegal shooting happening in your area.
