NICE: Know Your Neighbors
Take the time to at least know who your neighbors are. Are they elderly? Do they suffer from an illness? Would you be able to contact them if you needed help? Or could you help locate them if they were missing, injured or a tragedy?
Some families are lucky to have great relationships with their neighbors and are more friends/family than just neighbors. Some families could not even tell you their neighbors’ names or describe them in case of an emergency.
The recent blackout and memories of Sept. 11, have made it more prevalent to think about what would you do?
