STEP TWO: MAKE A PLAN
HOW TO PLAN
When preparing for a disaster, always:
- Talk with your family.
- Learn how and when to turn off utilities and how to use life-saving tools such as fire extinguishers.
- Tell everyone where emergency information and supplies are stored. Provide copies of the family's preparedness plan to each member of the family. Always ensure that information is up-to-date and practice evacuations, following the routes outlined in your plan. Don't forget to identify alternative routes.
- Include pets in your evacuation plans.
