A free program designed by the Washington Emergency Management Department and implemented locally by the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region, to improve readiness at the neighborhood level. Potential disasters and other emergencies can strike suddenly. Families and neighborhoods that are prepared for emergencies and disasters save lives, reduce injuries and trauma, and minimize property damage. Working as a team develops stronger communities and improves the quality of life in a community. MYN teaches neighbors to rely on each other. It takes just ONE person to begin. Using a 90 minute DVD to facilitate the MYN meeting and accompanying materials, provided at no cost, neighborhood leaders can help their communities get ready for a disaster.
