Emergency Preparedness It is always a good time to review your state of personal emergency preparedness by ensuring the following: 1. Have a family disaster plan including a pre-determined meeting place if separated from your loved ones. Review this plan with everyone in your family. 2. Have a family communications plan. In case you can't get in touch with your family members pre-designate a person for everyone to call and check-in to let them know you're okay and where you are. Preferably this pre-designated person should reside out of the local area. 3. Have an emergency preparedness kit including non-perishable foods, water, medications, and basic necessities. Remember to include any required specialty items for infants, elderly persons and your pets. You should have enough supplies to sustain yourself and your family members for 72-hours. 4. Severe weather/flash flooding. Be smart and remain alert for changing weather conditions. Avoid low-lying areas if it starts to rain, seek higher ground. Go indoors if you hear thunder or see lightning. Never drive vehicles through flooded roadways.
