At-Home Preparedness

Being prepared at home will help to minimize the damage to your home and/or injury to your family regardless of your presence.  Should an emergency occur while you are at work, would you be able to answer the following questions regarding your home and family?  Asking and answering these sample questions and others similar to them is critical to proper emergency planning for you and your family.

Prepare for At Home Emergencies

The following information will help you plan how to protect your family if disaster strikes and you are at work.  We cannot develop the plan for you, as each individual must consider a host of different factors in creating his/her distinct plan. However, we can make the process less burdensome and overwhelming by providing you with checklists to utilize when
developing your plan.

Following your review of the lists provided on the following pages, you may think of additional questions you need to ask and answer in order to develop your personal emergency preparedness plan. Take some time and share those thoughts with your colleagues, as they, too, may benefit from your observations and insights.
