MYN and MIEP Skills and Equipment names with codes

Please help other Island Neighborhoods and the Island

Congratulations and thank you for attending your Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) meeting. You are helping us to better prepare ourselves for a disaster.

During your meeting you identified your needs and the skills and equipment that you would make available to those who attended your MYN meeting. The MIEP Data Team would like to ask you to share some or all of your information with us so we might be able help other Island Neighborhoods and the Island with your resources, or other Neighborhoods could help you with your needs. Keep in mind that, if a disaster occurs, and we ask you, you have no obligation to provide that resource.

The MIEP Data Team is made up of twelve (12) Island volunteers: one primary and one alternate Section Coordinator for each of the six (6) Sections of the Island.

Where to send your help codes

Please review the list of help codes on the other side of this page (or below). Circle a maximum of nine (9) help codes that you wish to share with the MIEP Data Team. Then send an email to the MIEP Data Team at In the Body, type ONLY the list of two-character help codes you circled followed by your name and street address.

Who sees and what happens to your information?

Besides the attendees at your MYN meeting, only the twelve (12) volunteers of the MIEP Data Team will have access to your information.

One member will add your information to the restricted MIEP Data Base (DB). Access to the DB is restricted to the MIEP Data Team. When a disaster occurs, anyone on the Team can access and search the DB to find a resource that is needed and that is closest to where it is needed. If you have that resource, someone will try to contact you to see if you still have that resource. If you do, they will try to make arrangements to get it to someone on the Island who needs it.

Please imagine that you need a resource and your Neighborhood does not have it. Where would you get it? We hope that your Section Coordinator will be able to search the DB and find someone on the Island who has that resource and is willing to share it with you.

To prepare for a disaster, periodically the MIEP Data Team members will print off their Sections portion of the DB. There is a very remote chance that that printout might be seen by others.
