ARE YOU A PART OF A COSTA MESA COMMUNICATION GROUP 

OR CAN YOU START ONE TO HELP THE CITY BECOME SAFER?


A communication group is geographic – an apt. complex, a cul-de-sac, a block, a tract – in which the neighbors have or are working to complete having each other’s phone number and developing a group list of email addresses. (It is recognized there are some individuals who may not want to opt in to this safety program.) One or two neighbors maintain the email list and can send messages to the whole group quickly when needed. Those two neighbors would be on the main United Neighbors e-mail list and receive those messages, which they can send out or modify for their group as needed. Those that don’t have emails could receive a print of or a call about the message.

Some of you have worked hard with your neighbors and have a “tight” neighborhood group where everyone has each other’s phone and email address and stays closely in touch as needed, but you aren’t a formal association. You may be a cul-de-sac or a block or two. If you have a group contact with email and can get alerts and messages to your neighbors, you have a good start on neighborhood safety.

Even if you haven’t had a formal Neighborhood Watch (NW) presentation, if you are working with each other for mutual safety and preparedness and watching out for each other, that is a very good start. Having a NW presentation will give you more ideas on how to keep yourselves and your neighbors safe.
