Plan to Help Your Neighbor and Community

you are the help

Whether in the midst of the devastation of September 11th or Hurricane Harvey, time and again it has been a neighbor’s helping hand that has made all the difference. In a disaster, first responders cannot reach everyone immediately, so it is up to us as a community to be prepared to help each other. This week’s National Preparedness Month tips focus on two elements: skills and communications.


Skills - When help is needed, it is important to know what to do. The Weston Emergency Reserve Corps recommends being trained in at least CPR and basic first aid. As a quick and easy first step, do the free online program called "You Are the Help Until Help Arrives" (community.fema.gov/until-help-arrives).


Communication - Know how to get in touch with your neighbors, whether to check on them or to ask for their help. To get started, make sure that you have at least one phone number for each of your immediately adjacent neighbors and make sure that they have yours. Bonus points if you actually talk with them about preparedness and whether they have any special needs or resources you should know about.


Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.
