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.
