An emergency can happen anytime, anywhere. Have your family practice emergency procedures often, this will help them feel less disoriented and better organized in case of a disaster – even in the middle of the night or in the middle of winter. Start preparing now, don’t wait for an emergency to happen. There are simple things you can do now to prepare yourself. This video will help get you started and future videos will show you how to prepare your emergency disaster kit. Update the kit once a year, checking contacts, foods, medications, batteries etc.
One of the first things you should do is contact local authorities to find out more about the hazards in your community: Ask how you would be warned. Find out how to prepare for each type of disaster. Meet with your family and discuss the types of disasters that could occur. Meet with you family and explain how to prepare and respond to each type of disaster. Meet with your family and discuss where to go and what to bring if advised to evacuate. Work with your neighbours to make sure everyone is taken care of in your neighbourhood. Identify people who might need extra help during an emergency.
