Do you know your neighbours?
Your neighbours may be the first to be able to help you in an emergency. Introducing yourself to your neighbours can go a long way to making happier, safer neighbourhoods. You may also meet people in your neighbourhood who may need extra help in an emergency such as:
- Households with young children
- People with disabilities
- People living alone
- People with English as a second language
Talk to your neighbours about what they’ll do if the power is out. You might find they have a gas barbecue and you have enough food to share (or the other way round).
