It might work in your favor. If your neighborhood is just a small one, it can be quite close-knit and community minded. Everyone, or most of the neighborhood folks, seem to know a bit about each other. They get to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses. So, in times of need, when one household is in distress, the emergency response can be quite swift and efficiently carried out. And of course, there is always the neighborhood watch.
It should be standard practice by now. You can never be too safe. And the larger your neighborhood, the more precarious things could be at night. Not every neighborhood is privileged to have a state or county patrol car roving its streets at night. The irony of it all is that your law enforcement agencies are being tasked to prioritize those areas that are well and truly plagued with crime and grime. And your neighborhood is generally quiet, and clean.
And green. Heavy storms affect everyone in different ways. Your neighborhood might be privileged to have beautiful old trees lining the streets. But they can cause havoc during and after nasty storms. The neighborhood watch shift can only alert the authorities. The authorities are supposed to send over an emergency response unit. But who knows, perhaps their hands are full too. Like you do with your private security contracts, you can hire an emergency response team to look into affairs on your behalf.
They can help you clean up the area. They can even help you clean up your property. They will certainly have their hands full too. So they should not mind it very much if they get a few calls from your neighborhood volunteering to be of service. Every little bit certainly does help.
