With your family or household members, discuss how to prepare and respond to the types of emergencies that are most likely to happen where you live, learn, work and play.
 Identify responsibilities for each member of your household and how you will work together as a team.
 Practice as many elements of your plan as possible.

Create Emergency Contact Cards for All Household Members:

  • Print one card for each family member.
  • Write the contact information for each household member, such as work, school, and cell phone numbers.
  • Fold the card so it fits in your pocket, wallet or purse.
  • Carry the card with you so it is available in the event of a disaster or other emergency.
