Partnering with FEMA to Bring Hyperlocal Emergency Information to Neighborhoods Across America

Written by Jenny Mayfield

In times of disaster or emergency, our neighbors are often the first people we turn to for help.

That’s why, today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in support of their mission to build, sustain, and improve communities to help them prepare for, protect against, respond to, and recover from all hazards.

This partnership enables FEMA to deliver hyperlocal, targeted emergency and disaster preparedness messages and information to Nextdoor neighborhoods across the United States leading up to, during, and after natural disasters, such as hurricanes, snow storms, and major flooding.

Time and time again, we’ve seen the incredible role community can play in times of need, from the devastating flooding in Houston, to urgent evacuations around the Oroville dam, and fires in Napa. During these or other times of emergency, neighbors have repeatedly turned to Nextdoor as the primary way to communicate with others and ask for assistance.

Now, FEMA will be able to utilize Nextdoor as a key tool to disseminate highly relevant, hyperlocal information directly on the platform where neighbors are already discussing emergencies, disaster preparedness, and recovery efforts.

We’re honored to partner with the foremost agency leading emergency and disaster preparedness across the United States, and we look forward to helping them continue their commitment to protecting and serving neighborhoods across America.
