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.
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.
