CAN YOU REACH ALL YOUR NEIGHBORS WITHIN ONE HOUR?
The Golden Hour is the one hour you have after an earthquake to find any neighbors who may be injured and trapped.
Do you know which neighbors have skills and tools to help you rescue those who are trapped ?
Do you know which neighbors have functional needs – wheelchair, oxygen, walker, disability – so you can make sure they are OK?
Do you know which homes have children home alone if the parents are trapped at work, or in transit and can’t make it home?
If you are trapped at work, do your neighbors know your kids and pets and to care for them until you get home?
Do you know if you have a doctor/nurse/EMT or amateur radio operator on your street?
Is your neighborhood prepared with enough water and food to survive for 3 days to 3 weeks until help can arrive?
The Red Cross Map Our Neighborhood training will help you and your neighbors develop a plan where “neighbors help neighbors” until help can arrive.
