Emergencies can happen at any time, day or night, and also when the different members of the family may not be together. A family emergency plan is a very useful tool to prepare for any emergency and to make every member of the family feel calm and assured when emergencies occur.
What is a family emergency plan?
It is a plan that helps each member of the family to know what to do in any emergency situation: where to go, who to contact, how to react, what to take with them. It covers every type of emergency that might occur in your family: from natural disasters, to what to do when mom can’t fetch a child from school for whatever reason, or what to do when the electricity goes out. It can be a typed/written document or a physical plan of how to behave in an emergency – a good emergency plan will include aspects of both.
