Reasons to Know Neighbors

  • 01

    Helpful In Emergencies

    If you have an emergency it is good to know your neighbors. They might be able to help you in that time of crisis. If you should need some communication because your cell phone is running low, your neighbor will be able to lend you their cell phone or land line phone to get the needed help in the emergency situation. When you make a contact with your neighbor it can be a life line for you and your family members. You will learn a lot about that neighbor just by learning some of their strengths that can be helpful to you sometime in emergencies.

    Help In Neighborhood News

    So often just visiting your neighbors, you find many pieces of news you did not know by yourself. We are not talking gossip here, but facts that can be helpful for you to know about safety and danger as well. Go talk to your neighbor and get to know them to know the news. People have different spheres of influence as they go about their daily life. Your neighbors know people you do not know and perhaps some of those people you will be introduced to by your neighbors. Only if you introduce yourself to your neighbors do you even have a chance for that news.

    Tell Neighbors News

    There are many areas to inform neighbors that can benefit everyone. School age children seem to be full of chatter. If you do not have school aged children get to know the neighbors down the street from you that have children in school. You will either be able to tell your neighbor some news or they will inform you. Telling the facts that you know about criminals on the web that live in close houses from you and your neighbors is news you need to share with them. When a new neighbor moves into the neighborhood make it a point to introduce yourself.

    Neighborhood Watch

    Many people are forming neighborhood watches. This is done by getting together with the people who live in a short area of each other. The meeting is told to everyone and they are encouraged to attend the meeting. If they cannot attend they are encouraged to get together with some of their neighbors to find out the plan that was discussed at the meeting. They will be included in the neighborhood watch program because they live in the area of the watch.If you do not know how to plan such a meeting contact your local police or fire department and they will inform you.

    Survival Preparations

    Natural disasters happen all the time. Electric can go out because of a person hitting an electric pole, ice forming on electric lines and strong winds are just a few causes of lack of power. When neighbors know each other they can help in so many ways. They can help dispense food if they have a back up electric source until the electricity is restored to the other neighbors. During severe crisis; like Tornado, hurricanes, flooding or others, neighbors are invaluable. If people respect others they are less likely to pillar and loot their neighbors when there is a survival situation.
