Make a Plan

How often is your entire family all in one place at one time?

The likelihood becomes even less in the chance of a disaster. Odds are your children will be at school, your pet will be at home and you will be at work. How will you contact one another, get back together and handle the disaster in your individual locations?

Making a family emergency plan will help you to think about these questions and answer them before the disaster strikes.

Put Together Your Emergency Supply Kit

How many gallons of water are in your closet? Do you have a flashlight and batteries in the car or extra medication at the office? 

When preparing for a possible emergency situation, it's best to think first about the basics of survival: fresh water, food, clean air and warmth. 

However, your disaster kit may include other essential items that your family may need in the event of a disaster such as prescription medicine, diapers or spare contacts.

You may also want to inquire about emergency plans at places where your family spends time: work, daycare and school. If no plans exist, consider volunteering to help create one. Talk to your neighbors about how you can work together in the event of an emergency. You will be better prepared to safely reunite your family and loved ones during an emergency if you think ahead and communicate with others in advance. Read more:
