Family Disaster Plan

  • Discuss the types of hazards that could affect your home and family.

  • Locate a safe room within your home. This should be on the lowest level a basement is best. Put as many walls between you and the outside as possible.

  • Determine RALLY POINTS.

  • Have an out-of-state friend as a family contact, so all your family members have a single point of contact.

  • Make a plan for your pets NOW!

  • Post emergency phone numbers and make sure you children know when to call 911.

  • Check insurance coverage. Flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners insurance.

  • Have a disaster supply kit.
