Ways To Help Your Community

  • Get to know your neighbors- keep a list of phone number for emergencies.
  • Check on elderly and/or disabled neighbors during major snow storms.
  • Always clear your sidewalks as soon as possible - it is difficult for pedestrians to walk down sidewalks full of snow and ice but nearly impossible for wheelchairs.
  • Take the extra step to make sure the sidewalks on your block are clear of snow so it can be accessible to all. 
  • Check out resources available in your neighborhood - churches and other service organizations often have volunteers available to help those in need.
  • Visit Colorado Springs Office of Emergency Management to get more information on how neighborhoods can prepare for emergencies.
