Developing a Family Emergency Communication Plan


Family communication planDisasters can happen at any time, so it’s likely that you may not be with your family during an emergency. Do you have a plan in place to contact your loved ones to ensure they are safe? Before the storm comes, waves swell, or twister forms, create and test your family emergency communication plan so you can reach each member of your household.
Planning starts with these three steps:
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, 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.
Don’t Wait, Communicate! Watch this video to find out why having a family emergency communication plan is so important.
