Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) is a state-wide disaster preparedness program that empowers neighborhoods to prepare for emergencies and disaster situations. MYN is a wonderful resource that was designed with every neighborhood, community and individual in mind. MYN is designed to improve disaster readiness at the neighborhood level; urban homes; rural areas and in condos/apartment complexes; office buildings, etc…. MYN teaches neighbors to rely on each other during the hours or days before fire, medical, police, or utility responders arrive.
In a disaster your most immediate source of help are the neighbors living around you!
How should you prepare for an earthquake? What supplies will you need?
How much water should you have on hand?
Do you know how important it is to be able to rely on your neighbors or those around you?
The reality is that most neighborhoods will be on their own for the first hours following
disaster, maybe for as long as three days or even longer! If people have been hurt, if there’s a fire, if property has been damaged, the real first responders will be you and your neighbors. Fire, police, medical and 9-1-1 personnel will be overwhelmed dealing with immediate life-threatening demands.
We believe we are just weeks away from this disaster occurring!
