Make a Plan

Disasters rarely strike on your schedule so it is important to have a plan in advance. Your plan should include things like: 

  • What are the safe places to seek shelter in your home?
  • How will you contact your family, friends, neighbors?
  • What should you do in various disaster situations (hurricane, tornado, fire, flood, etc...)?
