Emergency Preparedness Checklist
 

 HAVE A PLAN & BUILD TWO EMERGENCY KITS : ONE FOR SHELTER-IN-PLACE & ONE GO-BAG.

Both emergency kits should contain the essential items you would need for at least 3 days. The Shelter-In-Place Kit has the supplies you would need in case you are required to stay in your home during an emergency. You should store it in a dry, stable area in your home. The Go-Bag is a small, easy to carry kit to take with you if you have to evacuate.

COMMUNICATION PLAN

Your most important safety step. You and your loved ones should have a predetermined emergency plan, so if you can’t get in touch with each other, you know what to do.
