What can you do to prepare for an emergency?

Have a family emergency plan. A family emergency plan will let the members of your family know what to do in the event of an emergency.

The plan should contain:

  • Emergency contact numbers for the members of your family, the police department, fire department, emergency medical services, utility providers, and poison control.
  • A map showing the escape routes from your house, and the assembly points so you can find each other after you get out of the house.
  • A list of contact numbers for family members and friends outside of the immediate area that can be called in case local telephone systems are tied up.
  • The location of your family disaster kit, and the checklist that keeps the contents of the kit up to date.
