How should one prepare at home for emergencies?
A plan should have three important things: a meeting place; an out of area contact; and an emergency supply kit. Pick a location within walking distance of your home where your family members can meet in case you get separated or have to evacuate. During a disaster, you may not be able to make local phone calls, but you can call out of the area. Pick a family member or friend to serve as your family’s contact. an emergency supply kit ought to have enough supplies to last three days as a minimum, but for even longer is better! Build a kit for home, for your car, and for your work. Remember to make sure your child is prepared for school.
