2/18: A Disaster Preparedness Meeting

  • Mt. Calvary Christian Center 1412 23rd Avenue Seattle, WA, 98122 United States (map)

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 should an Earthquake kit contain?
* How much water should you have in storage? Will you need Ba eries, a ashlight, or a transistor radio?

* Do you Know your Neighbors? Do you Know the Importance of being able to Rely on your neighbors/co-workers, or those around you? MYN shows you how to identify the skills & equipment each neighbor has that are helpful in an evaluate disaster response.

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.

* Learn the first 9 Steps to take immediately following a Disaster to secure your home and protect your neighborhood. It is hard to think clearly following disaster. These steps will help you quickly and safely take ac ons that can minimize damage and protect lives.
