Learn how to help your neighborhood prepare for a disaster.
Map Your Neighborhood teaches neighbors to rely on each other during the hours or days before fire, medical, police or utility responders arrive.

- Learn the first nine steps to take immediately following a disaster to secure your home and protect your neighborhood.
- Create a neighborhood map identifying the locations of natural gas and propane tanks for quick response if needed.
- Create a neighborhood contact list that identifies those with specific needs such as the elderly, those with a disability, or homes where children may be alone during certain hours of the day.
