Emergency Planning For Your Family | Print |

The more you know about the weather related safety issues the more you can prepare. Most natural disasters may require some amount of advanced preparation preparation

Make a Plan

Your family may not be together when disaster strikes. How will you contact one another? Select an out-of-state friend or relative who will more likely be in an unaffected location and in a better position to communicate between separated loved ones. Talk to your neighbors about developing a neighborhood communications plan.

There may be times when you will be instructed to stay in your home. You must then "shelter-in-place". Choose one interior room with the least number of windows and doors. Pre-cut and label plastic sheeting to seal around all openings. To help keep out harmful fumes, use duct tape to secure sheets in place
