Are you Prepared?  

Plans are a necessary part of life.  If you want to start a company you need a business plan, the game of chess requires a plan of attack, or you might even plan a vacation.  But how many of us take the time to create an emergency plan?

It is important to sit down with your loved ones before an emergency happens to talk about the possible hazards you face, what you need to do during an incident and what steps you will take to recover when the disaster is over.

  • Discuss the types of disasters that are most likely to happen. Learn what to do in each case.

  • Pick two places to meet: one right outside your home in case of a sudden emergency, like a fire, and one outside your neighborhood in case you can’t return home. Make sure everyone knows the addresses and phone numbers of your meeting places.

  • Check on the emergency plans of all schools your children attend.

  • Teach children how and when to call 9-1-1 for emergency help.

  • Show each family member how and when to turn off the utilities (water, gas, and electricity).

  • Conduct a home hazard hunt.

  • Find the safe places in your home for each type of disaster.

For more information, contact your local emergency management office.
