Your plan

Practice your Plan

Making a plan is critical to being prepared for an emergency. It’s important to create and practice an emergency plan so you and your family will know what to do in a crisis. Plan for the types of emergencies that are most likely to happen where you live, like flooding or earthquake preparedness.

Get Prepared

After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water, and other supplies to last for at least 72 hours.

A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. Make sure to have a family communication plan in place. Have all the important phone numbers written down or memorized in case your mobile device dies or you cannot use technology at home.
