Hurricane Irene approaching East Coast: FEMA Emergency checklist

Are You Ready?

Emergency Planning and Checklists

Now that you’ve learned about what can happen and how your community is prepared to respond to emergencies, prepare your family by creating a family disaster plan. You can begin this process by gathering family members and reviewing the information you obtained in Section 1.1 (hazards, warning systems, evacuation routes and community and other plans). Discuss with them what you would do if family members are not home when a warning is issued. Additionally, your family plan should address the following:

  • Escape routes.

  • Family communications.

  • Utility shut-off and safety.

  • Insurance and vital records.

  • Special needs.

  • Caring for animals.

  • Safety Skills
