How to develop your plan

Create a personal emergency plan for your family or close friends covering what to do, where to meet, where to go and how to communicate.

A personal emergency plan outlines what you and your family or close friends will need to do in an emergency. Read, review and rehearse your plan so everyone knows how it works and make sure everyone, even the babysitter, has a copy.
