Prepare for Emergencies in 3 Easy Steps
Ready in 3 is an easy way to learn how to prepare for an emergency.
Ready in 3 includes these three steps.
1. Create a plan for you, your family, and your business.
Your family may not be together when an emergency happens that’s why it is important to have a plan in place. Sit down and talk to your family about how you will reach each other in different situations. Make sure everyone can get to a safe place and find each other in the event of an emergency.
2. Prepare a kit for home, car, and work.
During an emergency you may not be able to get food or water for days or weeks, and your electricity may not be working. The following items should be part of your emergency kit and should be kept in a container that could be easily carried if you need to leave home:
- Canned or Dried Food
- Can Opener
- Extra Batteries
- Prescription Medications
- First-aid Kit
- Extra Money
3. Listen for information about what to do and where to go during an actual emergency.
It is important to stay calm in an emergency. Get as much information about the situation as possible. In case there is no electricity, make sure you have a battery-powered radio with extra batteries so you can listen for updates and instruction.
City, County and State officials have developed emergency plans. In the event of an actual emergency it is important to follow their instructions and advice. They will provide you with the latest information.
