LuAnn Johnson, a nationally-recognized disaster expert from Washington State's Emergency Management Division, explains how you and your neighbors can prepare for an earthquake emergency using the "Map Your Neighborhood" concept. Some communities in Southern Illinois are already involved in this process, which involves defining safe destinations in the event of an earthquake, or other disaster, and creating lists of neighbors who can provide resources needed in an emergency. Johnson was in the region in early April 2008 to discuss "Map Your Neighborhood" at the request of Carbondale's Neighborhood Housing Action Group.
