Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) Program
Organized MYN neighborhoods are the bedrock of any emergency and disaster plan. It is our neighbors who we will depend on to get us through any event that is thrown our way.
From feeding a crowd for six months up to a year, to neighborhood security, to transportation, to fatality management, to housing and communication, our neighborhoods will be the engine that makes sure our community as a whole survives everything from a county wide extended power outage in winter, to a wildland fire, to a disaster such as a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake and accompanying tsunami.
The original Map Your Neighborhood 9 Step program developed by LuAn Johnson, Ph.D., formerly of Washington State Emergency Management, has been remodeled specifically to address the unique and special needs of Sequim Operational Area (SOA) on the Olympic Peninsula. Dr. Johnson’s 9 Step Program is the baseline for the comprehensive neighborhood plans that will insure each community’s survival in case of an overwhelming disaster or emergency.
Ongoing messaging and continuing learning opportunities structured within our redesigned program have encouraged our neighborhoods to reach a level of preparedness that enabled them to actively participate in Washington State’s 2022 Cascadia Rising exercise. Working cooperatively with SOA’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program, our neighborhoods were able to actively help expedite CERT efforts to canvas within their team boundaries in a timely life-saving manner.
The ideas and suggestions which have come from these neighborhoods are shared with all in an effort to provide the latest and most innovative preparedness methods. We continue to be amazed at everything our communities have to offer.
