Anaheim is one of seven cities nationwide leading a pilot program for emergency preparedness and resiliency. In September 2011, Anaheim was selected for this honor when Mayor Tait’s Hi Neighbor program caught the attention of The Community and Regional Resilience Institute (CARRI), a national effort supported by the Department of Homeland Security. The Hi Neighbor program strives to create stronger neighbor-to-neighbor ties and will result in new neighborhood-level networks for community policing, emergency preparedness and community building. For more information on the Hi Neighbor Program please visit www.anaheim.net/neighbor.
