Neighborhood Readiness is an NWGNA Priority

Have you decided on your New Year's resolutions yet? Did you include improving your preparedness for a serious disaster? You should! Emergency responders are usually overwhelmed when disasters happen, so it will be up to us neighbors to help each other. 

NWGNA Friends & Neighbors Meeting
February 24, 2015
6:30 pm – 7:55 pm
Word of Faith Church on Fuller & Delmas

There is an excellent disaster preparedness program already used in 42 states around the U.S. called the “Ready Neighborhood” program. It can help you and your immediate neighbors respond to the emergencies caused by a disaster—and help kids or elderly or disabled neighbors who are home alone.

The first step is a “Map Your Neighborhood” meeting with 15-20 of your closest neighbors. At our February 24th Friends & Neighbors Meeting, we will watch the “Map Your Neighborhood” DVD and complete a meeting handout to see how it will work. We will all walk away with a 9-Step Neighborhood Response Plan and a better idea of how we can help our immediate neighbors be more prepared.

Do you want to learn more?
If so, send an e-mail to with questions or to sign up to attend the NWGNA Friends & Neighbors meeting on Feb. 24th at Word of Faith Church on Fuller and Delmas at 6:30 pm. Although signing up isn’t required for attendance, please do drop us a note with with your name, address, and phone number if you plan to attend. It gives us a starting point for the map! 

We hope to see you on February 24th!
