Disaster and Emergencies Can Strike without Warning, is Your Family Prepared?
In the wake of a disaster, often jurisdictions lose the ability to provide basic functions, such as water, gas, and power. Your family’s emergency plan can often be the difference between a minor inconvenience and catastrophic loss.
Your Pre-disaster Plan Should Address:
Types of hazards that can affect your family
Evacuation or shelter-in-place/ride-out trigger points
Rally or Muster Points
What zip zone you live in
Family communications plan (How are you going to communicate should you get separated? Be sure to account for any young children, functional access needs, pets, and elderly)
