A Preparedness Program for Residents

Residents with basic preparedness skills are more likely to handle everyday and large-scale emergencies successfully. Helping people obtain those skills is an important part of Baltimore County's emergency preparedness efforts.

"Neighbors Helping Neighbors" is a program sponsored by the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management designed to give you the information and tools needed to manage "everyday" emergencies, as well as large-scale weather and other major disasters.

The program is offered several times a year at various locations throughout the County and includes sessions held once a week for five weeks; you don't need to attend every session, though we recommend that you try to attend most of them.

Experts from Emergency Management, Fire, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Police conduct the training. Topics include:

  • EMS skills, including Hands-Only CPR and "Stop the Bleed" for trauma injuriesParticipants learning hands-free CPR
  • Fire safety and use of extinguishers
  • How to assemble first aid and disaster kits
  • Calling 911; a tour of the Baltimore County 911 Center and Dispatch is included
  • Crime prevention and awareness
  • What to do before, during and after weather disasters and other major emergencies
  • Community resources
