Emergency Plan

Families can cope with disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team.

You can do this by making a family disaster plan, getting basic emergency training, and assembling an emergency kit full of essential supplies, which will help you endure an evacuation or home confinement.

Don’t Forget Your Pets 

It is essential that you do not leave pets behind in an emergency. Planning in advance is as important for your pet as it is for you. Never leave your pets behind to fend for themselves. 

What To Do Before an Emergency 

Smoke Alarms 

Emergencies that can happen that can happen just to you and your family, like a fire in your home. Be informed about the best kinds of smoke detection, and the type of alarms that will work best to wake you and your children. The smoke alarms found in most homes may not be effective at detecting a smoldering fire, and children are likely to sleep through conventional smoke alarms. Do you need photoelectric smoke detectors in your home? Do you need a different kind of alarm that will be able to wake your child during a fire?
