Map Your Neighborhood
Neighborhoods that are prepared for emergencies and disaster situations save lives, reduce the severity of injuries and trauma and reduce property damage. In addition, contributing as an individual and working together as a team helps develop stronger communities and improve the quality of life in the community.
Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) is a program designed to help neighborhoods prepare for disasters.
MYN will help you to:
Learn the 9 steps to take immediately following a disaster to secure your home and protect your neighborhood.
Create a neighborhood map identifying locations of natural gas and propane tanks.
Create a contact list that helps identify those with specific needs such as elderly, disabled or children who may be home alone during certain hours of the day.
Identify the skills and equipment each neighbor has that would be useful in effective disaster response
Work together as a team to evaluate your neighborhood during the first hour following a disaster and take the necessary actions.
