Family Preparedness

Your family is the most important thing in your life. You want to make sure they are safe and have what they need to survive a disaster. In order to make sure your family is prepared to endure a major disaster, there needs to be a lot of planning and practicing. 

The first step is realistically looking at what you want to prepare for, looking at your resources, and evaluating your family's capabilities. 

Next, you need to brainstorm emergency plans by starting at your goal and working backwards. This will help you create a list of resources needed for that end goal. 

Create plans with your family and make plans on how to obtain the resources needed. 

Practice, practice, practice!!! Make sure to exercise your plans as realistically and safely as possible. Get your entire family involved to go through the plan, practice with goals in mind and try to improve as much as possible. Ask your family what whent right, what did not go so well, and where the plan can be changed to improve the overall efficiency. 

Following these steps will help to make sure your family knows what to do, how to act, and what to expect during an emergency. This will greatly improve the survivability of your family to endure future disasters. 

People spend their entire lives working to provide and care for their family, don't let a disaster ruin everything you have worked for. Make an investment toward your family's future today and learn how to make an effective family emergency plan.
