According to FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, a branch of the U.S Department of Homeland Security, “A well-thought-out plan of action for you and your family can go a long way toward reducing potential suffering from any type of disaster that could strike.”....“Household emergency plans should be kept simple. The best emergency plans are those that are easy to remember.”

“Maintaining a link to the outside can be crucial. Keep a battery-operated radio and extra batteries on hand.” 

“Post emergency numbers (fire, police, ambulance) by the phone. Teach children how to call 911 for help.”

…. “Identify family meeting places in case you are separated. Choose a place in a building or a park outside your neighborhood. Everyone should be clear about this location.”

"Develop an emergency communication plan. Ask an out-of-state relative or friend to serve as the family's contact. Make sure everyone knows the telephone number of this contact."

It is now recommended to have 5 to 7 days supply of food and water for each member of your family, including pets.Click on the links below for helpful tips and information:
