On the Second Day of Christmas…plan.

Make a family preparedness plan for the possibility that your family may not be together when an emergency occurs.

Discuss the following five steps:

Know the risks – learn about local hazards and plan for those that are more likely to occur. Does your area experience flooding? Forest fires? Earthquakes?

Make a family emergency plan – since your family may not be together when an emergency happens, a plan will help you and your family know what to do and how to reach each other in an emergency. http://Make a Plan Video (

Get an emergency kit – In an emergency, you will need some basic supplies. You may need to get by without power or tap water. Be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours. http://Emergency Kits (

Talk to your kids –  http://Emergency Preparedness for Children ( Discuss the information in this link with your children to help them understand emergencies and what they can do to prepare.

Spread the word – Building awareness is a great first step. Communicate the importance of emergency preparedness to your family.
