The threat of Terrorism does not mean you have to change your life!

Be Prepared - Have a Plan

Unlike a Hurricane or a flood there will likely be NO WARNING for a terrorist attack.  So what can we do?

Families need to know what to do to locate each other in a disaster.  A Family Disaster Plan is critical and should be in place at all times.  Your family's plan should include EMERGENCY CONTACTS, identification of MEETING PLACES and a DISASTER SUPPLY KIT.

FAMILY DISASTER PLANNING

Determine ESCAPE ROUTES from your home and MEETING PLACES; including your child's school, a neighbor or a public place.

Have an out-of-state friend of relative as a FAMILY CONTACT so all family members have a single point of contact.  Identify at least two ways of contact (phone numbers, e-mail, etc.)

 

 

Make a plan now for what to do with your pets if you need to evacuate.

 

 

Post EMERGENCY TELEPHONE NUMBERS by your telephones, on the refrigerator, in your wallet or purse and in children's book bag or backpacks.  Make sure children know how and when to call 9 1 1.

 

 

Stock non-perishable emergency supplies and a DISASTER SUPPLY KIT.

 

 

Set up a SAFE ROOM or improvised shelter in an interior room - windowless if possible.  Keep duct tape, plastic sheeting or garbage bags to seal around windows and doors and to close off heating and air conditioning ducts.
