Emergency Communication Plan
What is an Emergency Communication Plan?
An Emergency Communication Plan is a way to help you stay in touch with your family during an emergency.
Why should I develop an Emergency Communication Plan?
During a disaster you and your family members may not be in the same place or may get separated
How can I communicate with family during a disaster?
Plan on developing several different methods for communicating.
Have an out-of-state “family contact” that can be called by all family members.
Pick two places to meet if your family gets separated. One nearby and one at a distance.
Develop a family distribution list on e-mail and exchange information on the computer.
Develop a contact list for every family member, including work, school and cell phone numbers.
Teach family members how to access important information during a disaster.
