Make a Family Disaster Plan


Where will your family be when disaster strikes?  They could be anywhere--  at work, school, or in the car. How will you find each other?  Will you know if your children are safe?  Disaster can strike quickly and without warning.   It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home.  What would you do if basic services - water, gas, electricity or telephones - were cut off?  

Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away.  Families can, and do, cope with disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team.  Create a family disaster plan.  Knowing what to do is your best protection and responsibility.  Use the Sample Family Disaster Plan below to create a plan with your family.
