How about developing a disaster plan? How would you find your family if you are separated? How do you communicate in an emergency?
- Decide where your household will reunite after a disaster, Choose 2 places to meet: one right outside your home and another outside of your neighborhood, such as the church, or community center.
- Become familiar with exit routes from your home and from your neighborhood.
- Have the number of an out-of-state friend or relative to contact in an emergency, local lines may be tied up. This person can help you to communicate with others.
- Make sure that all of your household members and family have a copy of your contact #’s and of your plan in their wallets
- Practice your plan!
