Getting to know your neighbours is an important part of preparing your household. People who know each other in their community are more likely to turn to each other for help, and in the long term cope better with crises and emergencies.
Neighbours can help each other in many ways and can include people in your street or community.
Don't be caught out during an emergency - make time to get to know your neighbours and their needs before an emergency situation occurs.
There may be people who could need more help than others in the case of an emergency - help that often can be provided by neighbours.
