Basic Steps for Individuals and Households
Make a PLAN:
1- Learn about what you could face.Learn about the terrain and weather your city expects, what kind of disasters it has suffered and the possibilities of them affecting your area. Understand and get informed about your city’s mitigation plans.
2- Learn the areas of evacuation.Not only at the movie theater or the airplane. Escape routes are important at your house, office and any place you visit.
3.- Know how you will reunite with your love ones.Prepare an emergency plan and execute it every now and then so when the time comes your family is ready. Have a contact outside the state so you can let your love ones know that you are well. Teach your kids about how to protect themselves in the different faces of disaster.
