Map Your Neighborhood (MYN)


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. It is designed to  improve disaster readiness at the neighborhood level, 5 to 20 homes or a  defined area that you can canvas in 1 hour.  It  teaches neighbors to rely on each other during the hours or days before  fire, medical, police or utility responders arrive.

To learn more about organizing a MYN group for your immediate neighborhood contact us; we'll  answer your questions, provide training and materials, and support you along the way.
