Emergency Information

Neighborhood preparedness

In the event of an emergency some of your best help and support may be from your neighbors. Here's a list of  things you can do to help make your neighborhood safer.

  • Meet with your neighbors at least once a year. Get to know them. 

  • Create a personal support network. Identify a neighbor.  Agree to watch each other's home when you are away. Check on each other after a disaster.  Swap keys and lists of whom to notify in an emergency. 

  • Start a Neighborhood Watch program and meet periodically with your neighbors and the local Community Police Officers. 

  • Attend talks on neighborhood crime watch and emergency response. 

  • Encourage your block to prepare a neighborhood preparedness plan. 

  • Report unusual or suspicious behavior to the local law enforcement.
