• The Family Emergency Plan and Emergency Checklists documents include guidance and links to additional resources to help tailor a plan to your specific needs.
  • Consider family emergencies as well as the widespread disasters that may require evacuation (wildfire) or long term disruption in public services (earthquake). Important elements of a family emergency plan include:
    • Communication with family members and a contact out of the northern California area
    • A reunion plan – safe meeting places and transportation routes when emergencies cause separation
    • What to do and where to get help for expected emergencies
    • Practice – discussion of “what if” scenarios and practice drills for fire and earthquake
  • Enlist an Emergency Response Committee member to help.
