Neighborhood Preparedness

Preparing for and responding to disaster begins with preparing yourself and your family, but there are limits to what an individual or family can do. When a large disaster strikes and City first responders are overwhelmed, the first people you will turn to for help will be your neighbors. Building good relationships with your neighbors is the best way to extend your personal safety net.

The City of Seattle has created the Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare (SNAP) program to enable people to get prepared both at the personal and at the neighborhood levels. We have created an online toolkit to help you and your neighbhors prepare for the time when the City is unable to respond to your critical needs. For more information see the Getting Organized section of our SNAP program.

For more information, please contact Debbie Goetz at: debbie.goetz@seattle.gov or call 206-233-5076.
