September is FEMA’s National Preparedness month. The focus of the second week is to “Make a Plan to Prepare for Disasters”.
Here are four steps on making a plan.
Step 1: Put together a plan by discussing these 4 questions with your household to start your emergency plan.
- How will I receive emergency alerts and warnings?
- What is my shelter plan?
- What is my evacuation route?
- What is my family/household communication plan?
Step 2: Consider specific needs in your household.
Step 3: Fill out a Family Emergency Plan.
Step 4: Practice your plan.
