Look to for the advice necessary to get prepared for whatever may come your way. Make a plan. Your family may not be all together if a disaster strikes. It is important to think ahead. Know how you’ll contact one another and where you’ll reconnect if separated.

Customize your plan and supplies for your specific daily needs. Keep in mind some of these factors when developing your plan:

  • Different ages of members within your household
  • Dietary needs
  • Medical needs including prescriptions and equipment
  • Disabilities or access and functional needs including devices and equipment
