Planning - Have a Plan

Many disasters happen without warning. Take the time to plan how to protect and provide for yourself, your family, and your pets in the event of an emergency or disaster.

A plan should have three important things:

A Meeting Place - Pick a location within walking distance of your home where your family members can meet in case you get separated or have to evacuate. For example, a local park or playground.

An Out of Area Contact - During a disaster, you may not be able to make local phone calls, but you CAN call out of the area. Pick a family member or friend to serve as your family's Out-of-Area contact. In the event of an emergency or disaster, you can call your Out-of-Area contact and tell them you're safe, where you are, and where you are going. Your Out-of-Area contact can then share this information with other family members who call. All family members should have the phone number of your Out-of-Area contact with them at all times.

An Emergency Supply Kit - enough supplies to last you three (days) as a minimum, but for even longer is better! Build a kit for your home, for your car, and for your work. And remember to make sure your child is prepared at school.

Practice, practice, practice! The more you practice your emergency plan, the more likely you are to remember it in times of disaster.
