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!
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.
