Your emergency response box

Near you bed keep a box of items that will help you respond to an emergency.

Start with a small box with the following items.

  1. walkie talkies and batteries
  2. MYN brochure (contact info for your neighbors)
  3. Contact info for Neighborhood, Area and Section Coordinators
  4. flashlight and batteries
  5. gloves
  6. shoes (so you don't cut your feet on any broken glass and be comfortable outside)
  7. radio for local broadcasts
  8. red, yellow, green ribbons to attach to your 911 red sign to signify your status (need help now, come back later, OK)
