Residents are encouraged to plan for emergency situations and identify places that they can temporarily relocate to.
Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to plan: how you will contact one another; how you will get back together; and what you will do in different situations. Tell your neighbors, co-workers, and friends about your plan and encourage them to make one too.
You can make a plan in four easy steps:
1. Have a discussion with your family, friends or households about your shelter plan, the evacuation route, and communications plan.
2. Consider the specific needs of your household.
3. Fill out a Family Emergency Plan.
4. Practice your plan with your family or household.
