Family - Make a Plan

When a disaster hits, your first thoughts likely are about your family members: Where are they? Are they OK? How do we get through this? Disasters can strike quickly and sometimes without warning. Your family may not be together in the same place when they happen, so it is important to plan for a disaster in advance.

Sit down together and decide how you will get in touch with each other, where you will go and what you will do in different emergency situations. Keep a copy of your completed plan in an Emergency Essentials Kit or in another safe place where you can access it quickly.

Having a plan for your family will help ensure their safety and peace of mind during difficult times.
