Emergency Preparedness for a Disaster
In the event of a disaster, prepare to be self-sufficient.  During the first few hours or days following a disaster, essential services may not be available.  Minimally, you should have a 72-hour preparedness kit at home, at work and even a few items in your car.

  • Identify the most severe threats likely to affect you (e.g. earthquake, tornado, flood, etc.) and prepare accordingly
  • Make a disaster plan with your family.  Have a fire escape procedure and practice it.
  • Establish a designated meeting place and/or a phone number to call for family members to reunite after a disaster.  Assign duties to each family member.  Provide instructions for first aid and for turning off utilities
  • Specifically, each member of the family should have a personal survival kit.  This can be accomplished by preparing a backpack for every member
  • Inspect your home for damage to electrical, water and gas lines. Use your telephone only in case of emergency
  • Use your Neighborhood Watch program network to check on and help each other
