Think. Plan. Act.

Making an emergency plan in advance allows you to consider different situations. Use common sense and make the best decisions for you and your family.

When making your plan, think about the people and places in your daily lives. Talk to close friends and family about their plans. Develop plans together and include versions for work, school and other places you spend time. The more options you can think of now, the more prepared you will be later.

Prepare you and your family for different emergency situations. Learn when it may be best to stay in your home. Have a plan in place in case you decide to leave or are asked to leave by officials.
