books like scott’s are resilience stabilizers, helping us navigate the circuitous path of change. communities come together for solutions. going it alone is a myth; the more we embrace our collective wisdom and skills, the stronger and more resilient our communities become. oh, and make sure that those communities are building fun into the mix – no one wants a future unless it is going to be fun!

She is also the architect of the popular Map Your Neighborhood program for Washington State, now used in many states throughout the USA. Neighborhoods that are prepared for emergencies and disaster situations save lives, reduce the severity of injuries and trauma and reduce property damage. In addition, contributing as an individual and working together as a team helps develop stronger communities and improve the quality of life in the community. The Map Your Neighborhood program guides you and your neighbors through simple steps to help enhance your preparedness for an emergency. These steps will help you to quickly and safely take actions that can minimize damage and protect lives. It is designed to improve disaster readiness at the neighborhood level and teaches neighbors to rely on each other during the hours or days before fire, medical, police or utility responders arrive.
