Preparing for Evacuation and Power Outage

Preparing for Evacuation and Power Outage

The recent storm on the East Coast reminds us all that the time prepare for an emergency is before it happens. A family emergency kit is an essential part of planning ahead. FEMA offers a great basic disaster supply kit on their website: http://www.ready.gov/basic-disaster-supplies-kit. In addition, make sure the following are included in the event you need to evacuate quickly:

• Social Security and ID cards
• Birth certificates
• School records
• Medical, legal, and financial records
• Photographs—include a photo of the whole family together as well as each child’s most recent school photo. This is vital in the event you are separated in an evacuation.
• Contact information

Keep all of the above in one place. A large business or school portfolio that zips up works well.
