In Case of a Disaster • Community Sirens
Family Disaster Plan
Practice Your Plan
- Discuss the types of disasters that are most likely to happen in your area. Explain what to do in each case.
- Pick two places to meet if your family is separated:
- Outside your house in case of a home emergency (fire).
- Outside your neighborhood in case you can't return home.
- Everyone must know the address and phone number.
- Ask an out-of-state friend or relative to be your family contact. (After a disaster, it's often easier to call long distance).
- Other family members should call this person and tell them where they are. Everyone must know the contact
- and their phone number.
- Discuss what to do in an evacuation. Plan how to take care of your pets.
- Meet with your neighbors. Neighborhoods should plan to work together during and after a disaster until help arrives.
