Map Your Neighborhood (MYN)
Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) is a program designed to help neighborhoods prepare for disasters.
MYN will help you to:
- Learn the 9 steps to take immediately following a disaster to secure your home, and protect your neighborhood
- Identify the skills and equipment each neighbor has that would be useful in effective disaster response.
- Create a contact list that helps identify those with specific needs such as the elderly, disabled persons or children who may be home alone during certain hours of the day.
- Create a neighborhood map identifying locations of natural gas and propane tanks.
- Work together as a team to evaluate your neighborhood during the first hour following a disaster and take the necessary actions.
