FAMILY COMMUNICATION PLAN
Develop a â€˜Family Emergency Communication Planâ€™ in case family member are separated from one another during an emergency (a real possibility during the day when adults are at work or traveling and children are at school, camp or a friendâ€™s home). You can then develop a plan for safely getting back together. This will help assure everyone that all family members are safe.
- Ask an out-of-state relative or friend to serve as a â€˜family contactâ€™.Â After a disaster, it is often easier to call long distance than locally.
- Make sure everyone knows the name, address and telephone number of the contact person.
- Establish a family meeting point for when it’s safe to go outside, the best place is usually in the front yard of your home, in case there is structural damage to your home.
