CSP Spotlight: Plan to Help Your Neighbor and Community Featured

Almost half of Americans expect to rely a great deal on their neighbors after a disaster. Helping your community to prepare for disasters can lessen the hardship that is a part of any crisis situation. Learn skills you need to help yourself and others until help can arrive.

  • Take “Until Help Arrives” training.

  • Check on your neighbors.
  • Talk with your Power Company about utility safety.   
  • Get to know your neighbors. Think about people in your neighborhood who may need your help.
  • Talk to your neighbors to identify those who may need assistance—remember that many people value their privacy.
  • Make a list of task neighbors can help each other. Does anyone have special skills, such as: medical, technical, trade?
  • Plan how the neighborhood could work together after a disaster.
