Prepare Your Family

To prepare your family for an emergency you should:

  • Create or update emergency plans with your entire family so everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency. Ensure everyone has up-to-date contact info and knows what to do.
  • Practice your family plan. Have everyone build a family emergency kit together.
  • Check with places your family spends time, such as schools, workplaces, churches, markets, or sports facilities to learn what their emergency plans are.
  • Share the plans for these areas with your entire family and talk about what you would do if your family was not together during a disaster.
