National Preparedness Month: Creating Communication and Evacuation Plans
Throughout National Preparedness Month, we’re offering tips to help you know what to do if a disaster happens.
This week: Creating Communication and Evacuation Plans.
Your family may not be together when a disaster strikes, so it’s important to think about the following situations and plan just in case. Consider the following questions when making a plan:
- How will my household get emergency alerts and warnings?
- How will my household get to safe locations during disasters that can occur in our area (tornadoes, floods, severe storms, etc.)?
- How will my household get in touch if cell phone, internet, or landline telephones don’t work?
- How will I let loved ones know I’m safe?
- How will my household get to a meeting place after the emergency?
Here are some resources to help your family prepare:
- PARENTS: Record important emergency contacts and
Create a pocket reference to keep with you
- KIDS: Create a communication and evacuation plan
Keep an eye on the MFD Blog for more preparedness tips throughout September.
