What to Do if Disaster Strikes
If the disaster occurs near you, be prepared to give first aid and get help for seriously injured people.
If Children are in School During an Emergency
Check with school administration to identify the emergency plan specific to your children's school. Check the local media for announcements about changes in school openings and closings. For older children who drive themselves, ask them to follow the instructions of local authorities.
Look to Your Neighbors
Working with neighbors can save lives and property. Know your neighbors’ skills and consider how you can help neighbors with special needs, such as the elderly, or disabled. Make plans for child care in case parents cannot get home.
