Map Your Neighborhood will help you to:
Learn the steps to take immediately following a disaster to secure your homes and protect your neighborhood.
Identify the skills and equipment each neighbor has that are useful for an effective and timely disaster response. Knowing which neighbor has supplies and skills helps your disaster response, and allows everyone to contribute in a meaningful way.
Establish a neighborhood contact list that helps identify those with specific needs such as the elderly, disabled, or children who may be home alone during certain hours of the day.
Work together as a team to evaluate your neighborhood during the first hours following a disaster, and take the necessary actions to care for yourself and your neighbors.
Did you know that sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the United States? Unfortunately, most people who suffer a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital do not get cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from a bystander, which significantly lessens their chances of survival. CPR is easy to learn, and is taught to tens of thousands of people each year. The BIFD offers CPR classes at no charge to members of our community. Click HERE to register for a class.
