Map Your Neighborhood

Map Your Neighborhood

In the event of a disaster, your neighbors will be your first source of help, and you will be the first source of help for you neighbors. 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.

 The Map Your Neighborhood program guides you and your neighbors through simple steps to help enhance your preparedness for an emergency.These steps will help you to quickly and safely take actions that can minimize damage and protect lives.
