BEGIN BY DEVELOPING YOUR OWN EMERGENCY PLAN

  • Review the contents of this booklet. Discuss and plan what each person will do in the various situations described.
  • Pick two meeting places:
    1. One meeting place should be near your home or business in case of a local sudden emergency, like a fire.
    2. A second meeting place should be chosen so that people will meet if they can not return to your home or business.

  • Arrange for a family contact who lives outside of Brandon. Family members can phone the contact and leave information about where they are. This will help to keep everyone aware of the situation.
