HILLSBOROUGH NEIGHBORHOOD NETWORK (HNN) is a group of residents collaborating to organize neighborhoods for emergency preparedness at the individual, neighborhood, and community level. Our objective is to prepare neighborhoods to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours (but preferably 7 days/one week) in case of disaster, to promote a safer, more resilient community, and to build communication within neighborhoods and with the Town. HNN is supported by the Hillsborough Police Department, the Central County Fire Department, and the Town of Hillsborough.
“Hillsborough Neighborhood Network is an essential effort for the safety and well-being of our residents, and I encourage everyone in Town to get involved in this critical program. The benefits could save lives, and have the added advantage of being an enjoyable way to get to know your neighbors.” Christine Krolik, former Mayor
