Create Your Emergency Plan in Just 3 Steps
1. With your family or household members, discuss how to prepare and respond to the types of emergencies that are most likely to happen where you live, learn, work and play.
2. Identify responsibilities for each member of your household and how you will work together as a team.
3. Practice as many elements of your plan as possible.

Include Common Emergency Scenarios When You PlanPlan for the emergencies that are most likely to happen where you live
Plan what to do in case you are separated during an emergency
Choose two places to meet up:
- Right outside your home in case of a sudden emergency, such as a fire
- Outside your neighborhood, in case you cannot return home or are asked to evacuate
Choose an out-of-area emergency contact person. It may be easier to text or call long distance if local phone lines are overloaded or out of service. Everyone should carry emergency contact information in writing and saved on their cell phones. Make sure places where your children spend time also have these contact numbers, like at school or daycare.
Your plan should account for family members who may live elsewhere during the year, such as members of the military on deployment or students away at college, or those who travel frequently.
- How will you need to adapt your plan if they are at home?
- What will you need to do differently if they are away?

Plan for everyone in your home
Some members of your household may need special accommodation during an emergency, which means planning ahead is even more crucial.

A local Girl Scout Troop was working on the “First Aid” badge and found our page helpful in their research. Here is the letter we received from them along with an article they thought would be helpful for other girl scout troops. Posting it on our website will help them with their “First Aid” badge.
Hi Darwin, My Girl Scout Troop has been talking about First Aid and Emergency Preparedness while working super hard on earning their First Aid Badge! I don't know much on the subject and neither do the other parents, so we've all been doing a little bit of research and I came across your page: http://www.mcpwdisasterplan.com/red-cross.html which led me to some great information that have helped us teach the girls more about staying safe and disaster preparedness. Thanks! The girls would like to suggest another page, as a thank you for being such a big help: https://dealhack.com/how-to-save-money-by-making-your-own-disaster-supply-kit They thought that other people (and possibly other Girl Scout Troops) would find it helpful too! I was hesitant to email at first, but the girls have been asking me if I have emailed you about it yet. (haha they're so cute!) Thanks
