The components of a basic Emergency Preparedness Plan: Family Plan, Disasters Kit, and Evacuation Lists and bonus info on computer backup and other basic info.
EPREP Basics: Family Plan
It’s a good idea to be on the same page with your family as to what you would do in case of an emergency.
EPREP Basics: Disaster Kit (72 hour kits)
Be sure to have a disaster kit with supplies, 72 hour supply of food, and your important documents in an emergency binder.
EPREP Basics: Evacuation List
Having a good car kit and grab list will help in case of an emergency where you may need to evacuate.
POWERLESS COOKING
Do you have alternative ways of cooking foods without power? Do you also store the necessary amount of fuel to actually use those methods?
EMERGENCY HEATING AND COOLING
It is crucial for you to have a back-up way of heating and cooling your home in case of emergencies occurring during extreme weather conditions.
EMERGENCY SANITATION
While this isn’t always fun to talk about, it’s important to plan for and be ready for in case there were a situation where regular sanitation methods became unavailable.
