Statistically, 70% of all survivors of a disaster are rescued by other survivors.

Immediately after a disaster, you and your neighbors will become the first responders in your community. What you do in the first hour after an earthquake will save lives.

The Map Your Neighborhood Training (MYN) is a core part of the Ready Your LA Neighborhood (RYLAN) and Neighborhood Team Programs (NTP) and gives you the basic knowledge of what you and your neighbors need to do in the “Golden Hour” following an earthquake to take care of yourself and your family and to safely help your neighbors.

Traditionally this is hosted in one of your neighbor’s homes and generally focuses on 20-house hold blocks. These Block Teams become the core response during the first hour immediately following a disaster such as an earthquake.
