Family Emergency Planning Resources

Preparing for an emergency is everyone's job. Safety experts agree that the most important things to do to be ready are:

  • Create a family emergency plan and discuss it with all family members.
  • Build a kit so you are able to be self-sufficient for three days after an emergency.
  • Practice your plan so that when an emergency happens, everyone knows his or her role.
