Did you know the simple act of meeting your neighbour will help you cope in a disaster? When people know each other in a day-to-day setting, they’re better able to work together during an emergency. This is critical since the most immediate help following a disaster, like a flood or earthquake, will come from those directly around you — your family and neighbours. Connecting with them today, and working together to get prepared, will mean a better response and faster recovery.
The In It Together: Neighbourhood Preparedness Guide will help you join forces with your neighbours so you know what to do, who to check in on and what resources are available should disaster hit. Prepared neighbourhoods are resilient neighbourhoods. When you’re in it together, you’re stronger.
