Prepare Your Family with an Emergency Plan
Disaster can strike at any time, but do you have an emergency evacuation plan for your family?
There are four main steps to create a plan and prepare your household for the worst. The first step would be to assess potential disasters in your area - forest fire, earthquake, floods. Next, you’ll want to have a plan regarding how you’ll receive alerts and updates. If this will be done on your phone via news reports, you’ll want to invest in an external battery or car phone charger. You’ll also want to develop a meeting point with your family members, especially for young children who may not have a phone. In preparation for disaster or emergency, your children should also have you or another adult in your household’s phone number memorized in case the family is separated and unable to meet at the designated meeting point. Finally, you’ll want to put together an emergency kit that can be easily grabbed or even stored in your car (see the blog post “Emergency Checklist” for more information).
