What actions should you take to be prepared?
Family Disaster Plan, Disaster Supply Kit, Secure your home, Have a place to go, and Stay Aware
If you are asked to evacuate, you should do so without delay. But unless you live in a coastal or low-lying area, an area that floods frequently, or in manufactured housing, it is unlikely that emergency managers will ask you to evacuate. That means that it is important for you and your family to HAVE A PLAN that makes you as safe as possible in your home.
