Emergency Planning and Checklists

 

 Learned about what can happen and how your community is prepared
to respond to emergencies, prepare your family by creating a family disaster
plan. You can begin this process by gathering family members and reviewing the
information you obtained in Section 1.1 (hazards, warning systems, evacuation routes and community and other plans). Discuss with them what you would do if family members are not home when a warning is issued. Additionally, your family plan should address the following:
• Escape routes.
• Family communications.
• Utility shut-off and safety.
• Insurance and vital records.
• Special needs.
• Caring for animals.
• Safety Skills
Information on these family planning considerations are covered in the following
sections.
Escape Routes
Draw a floor plan of your home. Use a blank sheet of paper for each floor. Mark two escape routes from each room. Make sure children understand the drawings.
Post a copy of the drawings at eye level in each child’s room.
Where to Meet Establish a place to meet in the event of an emergency, such as a fire.

Maintaining Your Disaster
Supplies Kit
Just as important as putting your supplies together is maintaining them so they are
safe to use when needed. Here are some tips to keep your supplies ready and in
good condition:
• Keep canned foods in a dry place where the temperature is cool.
• Store boxed food in tightly closed plastic or metal containers to protect from pests and to extend its shelf life.
• Throw out any canned good that becomes swollen, dented, or corroded.
• Use foods before they go bad, and replace them with fresh supplies.
• Place new items at the back of the storage area and older ones in the front.
• Change stored food and water supplies every six months.

If you choose to use your own storage containers, choose two-liter plastic soft drink bottles – not plastic jugs or cardboard containers that have had milk or fruit juice in them. Milk protein and fruit sugars cannot be adequately removed from these containers and provide an environment for bacterial growth when water
is stored in them. Cardboard containers also leak easily and are not designed for long-term storage of liquids. Also, do not use glass containers, because they can break and are heavy.
