Preparedness Checklists

Emergencies can occur at any time. Your family may not be together during a disaster, so it's important to plan in advance — how to respond in different situations, how to contact each other, and where you will reunite after a threat is gone. Download these important PDFs, work with your family to fill in the blanks, and make sure everybody has a copy of the completed plan that they can keep handy. Consider taking snapshots of these documents with your phones or emailing them to your own addresses for easy retrieval. Also, keep copies in your Ready Kits as a backup.
