Now that many of us are spending more time outdoors in our communities, it’s easier to get to know the people who live around us. Connections made before a disruption or an emergency can make it easier to ask for help, or offer help when it’s needed.
Start building resilience in your community with these quick tips:
- Start with a friendly wave and say hello. Talking about the weather can help start a conversation.
- Create a shared contact list so you can stay connected during good times, and bad times.
- Set up a buddy system for things like getting the mail when you’re out of town, or for checking in on each other during a heat wave.
