Develop a Disaster Plan for Your Family A disaster plan can mean the difference between LIFE and DEATH. For example: • • How will you escape your home? Where will you meet family members? What route will you take out of your neighborhood if evacuation becomes necessary? Do you have an alternate route in case your route is blocked or otherwise impassable? What will you take with you? Where will you go? What will you need to shelter in place? Do you have those items or enough of those items? Homeowners/Renters Insurance? Play the “What if? ” game (what will I do if this happens? ) for high risk hazards to the community.
Develop a Disaster Plan for Your Family Disaster supplies included in your handout are fairly complete, and you should determine the supplies that you will need for evacuation, those that you will need to shelter in place, and those that you will need for both. • Evacuation-only supplies - supplies that are required for evacuation and shelter in place should be stored where they can be accessed quickly in an evacuation situation. • Shelter-in-place-only supplies - should be stored in an accessible location with the home or workplace.
