Neighborhood Preparedness

Map Your Neighborhood

Map Your Neighborhood is a program sponsored by the Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management, Bainbridge Island Fire Department, and the City of Bainbridge Island. It provides tools to help citizens and communities prepare for and withstand crisis - whether natural or man-made.

Map Your Neighborhood will help you learn the following:

  • 9 steps to take immediately following a disaster to secure your home and to protect your neighborhood.
  • Identify the skills and equipment each neighbor has that will be useful in an effective disaster response.
  • Create a neighborhood map identifying the locations of natural gas and propane tanks and other potentially hazardous items.
  • Create a contact list that helps identify those with specific needs.
  • Work together as a team to evaluate your neighborhood in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.
