Develop a family safety plan
An emergency preparedness plan is your family's guide to safety. Learn about potential disasters that can occur in your community and discuss what each family member should do.
Identify a place for family members to meet if separated by a disaster.
Establish an out-of-town friend or relative to act as a point of contact for separated family members to call. Make sure everyone has the number.
Ask your local emergency management office about your community's warning system, evacuation plans and routes and the location of public shelters near your home, work or school.
Complete an emergency preparedness checklist and review it with your family.
Depending on the type of disaster, determine the best escape routes from your house and find the safest place in your house.
Locate the main electric fuse box, water service main and natural gas main. Teach responsible family members how and when to turn these utilities off. Keep necessary tools near gas and water shut-off valves.
Post emergency numbers by the telephone.
Learn emergency first aid and CPR. Contact your local Red Cross chapter for details.
Install smoke detectors on every level of your home. Test them monthly and change the batteries at least once a year.
Show each family member where the fire extinguisher is kept. Get training on how to use it.
Identify potential hazards in your home and take corrective action to help reduce the risk of injury. Secure large or heavy items that could fall and cause damage or injury.
Practice implementing your plan.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the American Red Cross recommend families stock their homes with six basics: water, food, first aid supplies, clothing and bedding, tools and emergency supplies, and special items. Keep the items that you would most likely need during an evacuation in an easy-to carry container, such as a covered trash container, a camping backpack or a duffle bag.
Your emergency supplies should include a battery-operated radio and flashlight with extra batteries, matches in a waterproof container, a non-electric can opener, eating utensils, a fire extinguisher, plastic sheeting and tape. Also remember to have cash on hand because banks may not be open and ATMs may not be operating. Other items to consider include signal flares, sewing supplies, basic tools, maps, a whistle and sanitation supplies (such as toilet paper, a plastic bucket, disinfectant and soap).
During an emergency:
Remain calm and patient. Put your plan into action.
Check for injuries. Give first aid and get help for seriously injured people.
Listen to your battery powered radio for news and instructions. Evacuate, if advised to do so.
