[ARCHIVED] Be Prepared for an Emergency: Map My Neighborhood Training

Map Your Neighborhood houses in Signal Hill from above

Neighborhoods that are prepared for emergencies can save lives, reduce the severity of injuries and trauma, and reduce property damage. 

To help coordinate neighborhood efforts in a disaster, Signal Hill utilizes the Map Your Neighborhood program. MYN teaches neighbors to rely on each other before emergency responders arrive. You'll map out potential hazards, neighbors who will need extra assistance during a crisis, and neighbors who have valuable skills or resources. Your team of neighbors will then use this information to organize and create a disaster response plan, giving you the confidence to think quickly and clearly during a crisis.

MYN training is designed to be delivered to residents by residents. Interested residents receive training from the Signal Hill Emergency Operations Coordinator, then train their neighbors on disaster preparation, response and recovery.

To sign up, contact EOC Coordinator Angel Hernandez at 562-989-7239 or at
