Creating plans for family communications, loved ones with special needs, household matters, financial documents and evacuation are all part of being well prepared.  During an emergency, family members may not be together and a Family Communications Plan will assist people in contacting each other.  Household Plans will assist your family in knowing how to prepare ahead of time and what to do during and immediately after an event. Businesses, schools and neighborhoods should take steps to develop plans as well.  Neighbors and co-workers often support each other during times of disaster. There are some tips and links for planning below, or see our Regional Emergency Preparedness Guide. Individuals with disabilities can learn more about planning in The Independence Center Guide for People with Access and Functional Needs.
