Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program

Prepared neighbourhoods are resilient neighbourhoods. When you’re in it together, you’re stronger. Did you know the simple act of meeting your neighbour could help you cope in a disaster? When people know each other in a day-to-day setting, they’re better able to work together during an emergency.

Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program (NEPP)

Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program (NEPP) is made up of volunteers from your community. The purpose is to provide information and guidance to individuals, families, businesses and neighbours in preparing for a disaster.

Encouraging people to get to know their neighbours allows them to share information, offer support, and feel connected. Should anything happen, like a severe storm or earthquake, your neighbours will be your first responders.

Meet Your Street

Meet Your Street takes this initiative further and supports a sustainable community that aims to increase and improve interpersonal connections to help us create happier, healthier, and more resilient communities. Learn more about Meet your Street.

NEPP offers presentations to neighbourhoods to bring communities together and build a resilient network. It only takes a couple of neighbourhood get-togethers before you have the necessary information and skills, then you and your neighbours will be prepared to assist each other in an emergency.
