Community / Preparedness

Neighbor to Neighbor -- The Downtown Solution: IPNTA's Guide to Community Healing


A purpose in discussing preparation is to help overcome our fear or denial. A goal of terrorism is to keep us constantly afraid and on-guard. However, being “prepared” is a positive antidote.

Make A Family Plan

Make your plan, and give to all appropriate family members, friends, or other contacts.

1. Pick an Out-of-State Contact. It may be easier for separated family members and friends to call or email out-of-state than locally. (As we learned, it was easier to call California than midtown Manhattan.) Everyone should contact that person to tell him or her where they are.

2. Plan Meeting Places. Pick two locations: one in your neighborhood, one outside the neighborhood in case you can't get home. Everyone should know the address and phone number.
