Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness

It’s important for families to know what to do in case of an emergency. This means understanding what emergencies are likely to occur in your area and specific ways to respond to each one.

You should also understand where to get information about potential threats and how to prepare and plan to minimize injury and damage.

Ways to prepare

  • Check to see that you have enough insurance to cover possible flooding or structural damage to your home and property.
  • Install smoke detectors on each level of your home, especially near bedrooms. Test and recharge your fire extinguisher(s) and smoke detectors according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Install at least one battery–powered or battery back-up carbon monoxide alarm in your home, preferably near bedrooms. Test the battery at least twice a year, when you change the time on your clocks.
  • Take a Red Cross first aid and CPR class .
