Be prepared for emergencies at home too! Here is some information to assist you and your family.

  1. Identify what types of emergencies can happen in your area (earthquakes, fires, floods, etc.)
  2. Create a disaster plan
    • Pick two places to meet outside of home
    • Identify an out of state friend or relative that family members can contact
    • Plan how to take care of elderly, disabled, and pets
  3. Create a checklist
    • Emergency phone numbers
    • Utility shut-off locations
    • Emergency supplies
    • Vital documents and medications
  4. Practice your plan
    • Quiz children so they remember what to do
    • Conduct evacuation drills
    • Replace perishable supplies
