Emergency Prepardness

Be Informed
Learn about the different threats, such as: Discuss the different hazards with your family, and monitor TV, radio, or trusted internet sites for information.
Make a Plan
Think ahead and create a family emergency plan. Discuss with your family what you will do if you must evacuate, how you will get there, and where you will find each other. Practice these plans and always keep a contact list. Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors monthly, and learn how to turn off gas, electric, water and heater systems using the main breaker switch.
Learn first-aid and CPR, along with basic safety rules. Make sure your children know what to do if they are home alone, and remember to make plans for your children, pets, and elderly ones.
1.        Collect – Create a paper copy of the contact information for your family and other important people and offices, such as medical facilities, doctors, schools, or service providers.
2.        Share – Make sure everyone carries a copy in his or her backpack, purse, or wallet. If you complete your Family Emergency Communication Plan online at ready.gov/make-a-plan, you can print it onto a wallet-sized card. You should also post a copy in a central location in your home, such as your refrigerator or family bulletin board.
3.        Practice – Have regular household meetings to review and practice your plan. You can also create wallet-sized cards that include contact information and emergency meeting places.
Have an Emergency Kit

Always be sure to have two emergency kits ready in case of a disaster; one large kit with 3 days of supplies, and a smaller, portable kit in case you must evacuate the area. Kits should include: Possible Grocery List If you evacuate you also should take Note: If the storm does not hit, save your supplies for the next storm.  Once hurricane season is over, you can eat your canned foods or donate them to a holiday food drive.  Most canned foods have a shelf life of 1-2 years, so it is a good idea to replenish yearly.
Pets 
If you have to evacuate to a public shelter because of a disaster, keep in mind that animals may not be allowed inside. 
With proper planning, you can help ensure your pet’s safety if you have to separate. Just follow tips from the Ready Campaign, including:
·        Assemble a pet disaster supply kit;
·        Talk with your pet’s veterinarian about emergency planning;
·        Plan with friends, neighbors, or relatives to make sure someone is available to care for or evacuate your pets if you are unable to do so; and
·        Look for a boarding facility such as a kennel or veterinarian hospital that is near an evacuation facility or your family’s meeting place. 


Remember to stay calm, have plans ready, and listen for instructions from local officials.
