Often during a disaster, as resources become over extended, it takes the community working together to assist each other in time of need.

Before a disaster:

  • Get to personally know your neighbors and others in your community
  • Learn what resources and equipment they may have to assist you and vice versa
  • Share phone numbers of your family and close friends
  • Let your neighbor know where you may be temporally located
  • Ask if a neighbor can check on your residence while you are away
  • Learn if there is someone in your community in the medical profession
