Reunited with the help of Neighbors

Communities pull together during disaster.

One neighbor was so grateful they posted in an effort to personally thank the firefighter for saving their home.

If my public safety agency starts using Neighbors, how will I know? Arrow Icon

Ring sends in-app announcements to users through Neighbors when local public safety agencies start using the app. Our Active Agency Map allows users to search either by zip code, address or visually by zooming into a region or city to see if their local public safety agency is using Neighbors. You may also see a press release, social media posts or other external announcements if the public safety agency chooses to post them.
