Map Your Neighborhood
. Neighborhoods that are prepared for emergencies and disaster situations save lives, reduce the severity of injuries and trauma and reduce property damage.  In addition, contributing as an individual and working together as a team helps develop stronger communities and improve the quality of life in the community.

The Map Your Neighborhood program guides you and your neighbors through simple steps to help enhance your preparedness for an emergency.  These steps will help you to quickly and safely take actions that can minimize damage and protect lives.

Map Your Neighborhood is designed to improve disaster readiness at the neighborhood level and teaches neighbors to rely on each other during the hours or days before fire, medical, police, or utility responders arrive 

Issaquah Citizen Corps will work with you to schedule a time that a representative can meet with you and your neighbors to discuss Map Your Neighborhood.  This is an excellent opportunity to meet your neighbors and learn what skills and tools are available in times of emergency.

You may not know that your neighbor is a contractor and can help stabilize structural damage.  Do you have a chainsaw and can help clear downed trees and limbs?  What about the one house with the weird antennas?  They may be radio operators and can communicate for you when normal communication methods are down.

Make the time to learn this important information now, before an emergency happens and it's too late.
