Be Prepared
Create an Emergency Preparedness Plan for your Family In the event of an emergency, natural or otherwise, it is important to make sure that your family’s basic needs are being met and that they are safe. The most effective way to do this is to have a plan in place. It’s very easy to panic during an emergency; being mentally and physically prepared may help to minimize that feeling of panic and enable you to keep your family calm, cool, collected, and most importantly, safe. An emergency preparedness plan should include a disaster supply kit, as well as any emergency essentials. Emergency preparedness supplies should also be arranged and easily accessible. While your family’s emergency plan will be unique to you, there are a few general points that will help to best prepare you for success.
