Here are some tips to help you get started:
- Discuss with your household or family how you will communicate if there is an emergency.
- Decide and practice your emergency plan with members of your household.
- Houses, mobile homes, apartments, and high-rise buildings have different evacuation considerations. Make a plan for each.
- Involve your entire family, including your children, in planning for disasters and emergencies so they are prepared, not afraid.
