Learn how to help your neighborhood prepare for a disaster. Map Your Neighborhood teaches neighbors to rely on each other during the hours or days before fire, medical, police or utility responders arrive. Attend a workshop to become a Neighborhood Ambassador Volunteer and Fire District 1 will work with you to host a Map Your Neighborhood meeting for your neighbors.

Workshop participants will:
· Learn the first nine steps to take immediately following a disaster to secure your home and protect your neighborhood.
· Create a neighborhood map identifying the locations of natural gas and propane tanks for quick response if needed.
· Create a neighborhood contact list that identifies those with specific needs such as the elderly, those with a disability, or homes where children may be alone during certain hours of the day.
· Learn to work together as a team to evaluate your neighborhood after a disaster and take the necessary actions.
