Make a plan to protect yourself and your loved ones in the event of a disaster.
Your family may not be together when a disaster strikes so it is important to plan in advance how you will get to a safe place, how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what will you do in different situations.
Ready.gov has made it simple for you to make a family emergency plan. Download the Family Emergency Plan (FEP)(PDF-506kb) and fill out the sections before printing or e-mailing it to your family and friends.
You should inquire about emergency plans at places where your family spends time, work, daycare, school, faith organizations, sports events, and commuting. If no plan exists, consider volunteering to help create one. Talk to community leaders, your colleagues, neighbors and members of faith or civic organizations about how you can work together in the event of an emergency.
Check with your local government websites for available programs on Disaster Preparedness.
