WHAT IS A FAMILY EMERGENCY PLAN?
A family emergency plan is exactly what the name suggests: it’s a plan to help your family cope and overcome emergencies and disasters.
WHAT SHOULD A FAMILY EMERGENCY PLAN INCLUDE?
Your family emergency plan should include:
- A backup storage of water, food, and emergency supplies
- A way to safely store and access important documents
- A plan to contact friends and family in an emergency
- A rapid evacuation plan
- The knowledge of which natural disasters your community is at risk of, as well as how to mitigate and stay safe in the midst of them
There are other aspects of family preparedness to consider, but the ones just mentioned are a great place to start.
