At Home – Step 3 of 4
First, Read the Information You Need:
There is a program called Map Your Neighborhood that some areas use. Learn about it by watching this 2 minute video.
Map Your Neighborhood is not widely spread. However, the concept of knowing your neighbors, what they might need, who is willing to help, and having a neighborhood plan in place is a good idea if you want to make sure your street, block, or community is taken care of during an emergency. Watch this 3 minute video to see how one community in California uses the program.
Second, Choose an Option:
Your Extended Circle
|Instead of focusing on your neighbors, start with your own family and friends who live near you. |
What steps would you like to see your friends and family doing in an emergency?
Identify the people you want to be in on your plan that live near you. This is your circle.
Come up with a plan for an emergency that involves your circle.
|It takes a group effort to use a program like Map Your Neighborhood (MYN). |
Using what you learned about MYN, what things would you like to see your neighbors do in an emergency?
How would you go about getting others in your neighborhood to join your plan?
Do you have an HOA or neighborhood group that already meets?
Make a plan. Discuss the plan with your parents.
