Map Your Neighborhood
Fires, Earthquakes, Floods, Storms – Is Your Neighborhood Ready?
In a disaster the neighbors living around you are your most immediate source of help. Traditional 911 responders are quickly overwhelmed by demand.
The Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) program is a strategy that empowers neighborhoods to prepare for emergencies and disaster situations. The program helps save lives, reduces the severity of injuries and trauma, and reduces property damage.
In addition, working together as a team and contributing as an individual develops stronger communities and improves the quality of life in the community.
An increasing number of neighborhoods and drainages in the Methow Valley have Map Your Neighborhood groups or associations to support each other in time of disaster.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to connect with your neighborhood group. If there isn’t one, we’ll provide you the tools and the know-how to start one!
