A Different Kind of Preparedness

Preparedness comes in all different shapes, forms, actions and plans. Therefore, any effort that provides a community with the tools to be better prepared and resilient is worth looking at!
The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) is proud to present the new National Neighborhood Watch Program. This program prepares citizens to defend against crime and bond through service within their community. The Neighborhood Watch Program draws upon the compassion of citizens, asking them to lend their neighbors a hand. It provides a wealth of resources to the community:
  • Training;
  • Technical assistance;
  • Resource documents;
  • National Neighborhood Watch stories;
  • Networking; and
  • Assistance in the community.
Much like emergency preparedness programs throughout the country, the National Neighborhood Watch Program empowers citizens to become active in community efforts through participation in Neighborhood Watch groups.
Interested in becoming a member of the National Neighborhood Watch or finding a way to partner your emergency preparedness organization with the National Neighborhood Watch? Visit www.nnw.org for more information.

Thanks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for this information.
