Do More Than Cross Your Fingers
You can get your family up to speed with three simple steps:
Get a kit — Put together an emergency preparedness kit that includes food; water (at least 1 gallon per person, per day); extra cash; a first aid kit; a flashlight; a radio; a multipurpose tool; medications and medical items; copies of personal documents; a cell phone with chargers; a map of the area; an emergency blanket; emergency numbers; sanitation supplies such as disinfecting bleach; and other essential items.
Make a plan — Develop a plan for family communication in the event of an emergency. Agree on evacuation routes so everyone knows what to do and where to go.
Be informed — Learn which disasters may naturally occur in your area and what actions to take to protect yourself. Make sure that at least one member of your household is trained in first aid and CPR and knows how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).
