What is a disaster?
Disasters, by definition, are events that overwhelm police, fire, and medical 911 emergency responders.
MYN helps us organize a timely response to disaster when 911 is unavailable. All of us, working together, can reduce the serious consequences of disaster in our neighborhood.
What will we do?
- We will learn a 9-step Neighborhood Response Plan that immediately helps us know what to do – both at home and in the neighborhood – to respond to injuries, leaking natural gas, and assisting people who may be alone and frightened. The process is proven, fun, and easy.
- We will identify the skills and equipment each neighbor has that are useful in an effective and timely disaster response.
- Completing this course will enable us to be a trainer for other groups.
- We will go home with the materials to organize and train neighborhood groups, contact list, and skills and equipment inventory.
