Planning for Emergencies Everywhere
Prepare & Practice
Ask your employer if there is an emergency plan for your workplace and incorporate it into your personal plan. Occasionally review, update and practice your preparedness plans.
While commuting, carry with you a small flashlight, dust mask and a pair of protective gloves. The Red Cross Safety Tube is also recommended. Keep a local map with you in case you need to walk or take another form of transportation.
