Your family may not be together during an emergency, so having a plan that everyone is familiar with is important. Make sure you include a meeting place, important phone numbers, and ways to get emergency alerts in your plan.
Assemble an emergency kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take your essentials with you. You may need to survive on your own after an emergency. Know what you need in your kit.
Emergencies can happen anywhere, anytime. Know what to do before, during, and after an emergency is a critical part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.
