Disaster Preparedness

Take time now to talk with your family about what everyone should do if there is hurricane or other disaster. Waiting until the first storm forms is too late to make a plan and gather supplies.

What kind of disasters might happen in the area where you live? In a fire, flood, tornado, hurricane or power outage, you may have to find a safe place away from home. Or, in some emergencies, you may have to stay at home for many days. Either way, make sure you are “Ready-to-Stay” or “Ready-to-Go” in an emergency.

Make sure everyone in your family knows your plan. In a disaster, it is sometimes hard to make a local phone call. So choose someone you know who does not live near you. Write that phone number on a card and put it in your wallet or backpack. Write down other important numbers there, too. If family members are not together when the disaster happens, everyone should call this person to say where they are.

Generators can be very helpful in an emergency. Generators are machines that make electricity. You can use them if the power in your home goes off. If you have a generator, you can keep your food cold and safe to eat. Generators can keep your house warm enough or cool enough for your family. They keep machines working if you have special medical needs. If you use a generator, you need to know how to do it safely.

This month, make one Saturday a “Safety Saturday” by taking steps to keep your family safe in a disaster. Talk with your family about what you would do in an emergency. Put together your “Ready-to-Stay” and “Ready-to-Go” kits so you will have everything you need. Use the Home Safety Council’s simple step-by-step check lists to make sure your family is ready for a disaster:
