Reminder: MAP-Ed Quarterly Meeting THIS SATURDAY!

REMINDER!! Our MAP-Ed Quarterly Meeting on February 6, 2016 | 11 am to 1pm: Join us as we get ready to Map Your Neighborhood (MYN)! In partnership with CERT, MYN provides a step-by-step process that groups of neighbors can work through together to prepare their neighborhood for disasters. It takes just one person to begin this process by personally inviting the neighborhood to his or her home for a 90-minute preparedness meeting. MYN is designed to improve readiness at the neighborhood level. The program acknowledges that disasters are events that create many emergencies at the same time. Professional responders, including police, firefighters, paramedics, and utility personnel, are typically overwhelmed and must prioritize their responses. During the hours or days that may pass before they can respond, residents must rely on themselves and their neighbors for assistance.
