Description

MAP YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD (MYN)


A free program designed by the Washington Emergency Management Department and implemented locally by the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region, to improve readiness at the neighborhood level. Potential disasters and other emergencies can strike suddenly. Families and neighborhoods that are prepared for emergencies and disasters save lives, reduce injuries and trauma, and minimize property damage. Working as a team develops stronger communities and improves the quality of life in a community. MYN teaches neighbors to rely on each other. It takes just ONE person to begin. Using a 90 minute DVD to facilitate the MYN meeting and accompanying materials, provided at no cost, neighborhood leaders can help their communities get ready for a disaster.

Are you ready to be a leader in your neighborhood and create a disaster plan with your neighbors?

Be a solution for your neighborhood. How to participate:

1. Reserve your seat at the next Los Angeles Region Train the Facilitator session

2. Attend the 2 hour facilitator training session and learn how to Map Your Neighborhood

3. Host a 90 minute MYN with your neighbors - you will learn how to host the meeting with your neighbors during the training class


NOTE: This class is best suited for individuals that would like to learn how to create a disaster plan for their block. It's not designed for neighbors to attend together - instead 1-2 neighbors per block should attend the training. Those residents will learn how to organize their block and how to host a disaster planning meeting with their neighbors, which they will hold at a future date in their own neighborhood.
