What is the first step to building a Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Team?

  1. Before getting started on organizing your Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Team, ensure your household is prepared. See Prepared BC Household Preparedness Guide for more information.
  2. Once your household is prepared, you can get started by getting to know your neighbours.
  3. Prepare for this by connecting with your local emergency program, they can support you by providing handouts and facilitating workshops in your neighbourhood, see Prepared BC Neighbourhood Preparedness Guide. Please contact your local emergency program representative to learn more.
  4. We suggest organizing a get-together and having a discussion about household emergency preparedness. Make a plan to meet, chat and learn about what you can do together.
