What is Map Your Neighborhood?

Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) is a disaster preparedness and response program for you and your immediate neighbors. In one short meeting with your neighbors you’ll learn the 9 steps to take immediately after an area-wide disaster that will help you and your neighbors respond to problems at your home and on your block, how to prevent a small problem from becoming a big problem, and how to report your block’s status to your area’s CERT reporting location for the most effective way to get help from emergency services – even when the 911 system is down.  The Map Your Neighborhood program started in our city in 2008 and is managed under the Manhattan Beach Fire Department.
