Help your community be ready and get to know your neighbors.
Disasters shouldn't be the only time our communities come together. Make the time now to get to know your neighbors so you're ready to help each other out when disaster strikes. And make sure your neighbors are prepared too, because there's no better resource than a prepared community!
The Neighborhood Ready class is a 90-minute session led by a facilitator that helps you and your neighbors take the steps to be ready for emergencies.
You can also consider taking a CERT class. CERT classes consist of eight three-hour sessions, and cover a variety of topics to help you and your neighbors in the immediate aftermath of a disaster, until local agencies can step in.
