Prepare for an Emergency Part 2

June 13, 2017 - Updated: June 13, 2017

 

COLLECT IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS

Organize important documents in one place—such as an accordion folder or fireproof safe—so you can easily grab them incase of an emergency. Sort them into categories: personal documents, financial, home, insurance, taxes, health/medical and employment. Also, keep any flash drives, removable hard drives or other storage media in the same location.

PRACTICE

Now that you have a plan, be sure to review and practice it with your family regularly. The more familiar you are with your plan, the more prepared you’ll be in the event of an emergency. And, the more prepared you are, the safer you’ll be.

 

STAY  CONNECTED

Know what to do when disaster strikes! Sign up for text alerts from your local emergency services to receive warnings and other up-to-date hazard information. Also, download weather apps to your smartphone to stay on top of dangerous weather-related activity.

If you find yourself in an emergency situation, send a text to your family to let them know you’re safe. Texts are more likely to get through busy lines.

 

Remember your pets!!!!

 

Our pets are family members, too. Don’t forget to include them in your emergency preparation and evacuation plans. Visit the Canadian

Disaster Animal Response Team (cdart.org) for detailed packing lists for cats, dogs, birds and horses.

Your Pet’s Emergency Kit

•     3-7 days worth of food and water

•     Documents, such as copies of the pet’s medical

       records and current photos, just in case you’re separated

•     Sanitary items, such as garbage bags, litter and disposable trays for cats and cage liners for dogs

•     Miscellaneous pet items, such as extra harnesses, collars, leashes, a travel carrier and a blanket
