You and your loved ones may not be together when an emergency strikes. Some may be at work, others at school, while some may be at home. Make a communication plan so you will be able to stay in touch with each other using the following steps:
- Choose an out of town friend or relative to be a contact point for family members to call if you are separated during an emergency.
- Make sure everyone knows how and when to call 911 or local emergency medical services for emergency assistance.
- Post emergency and contact numbers by all phones in your home.
