NPM 2021: Week One "Make a Plan"

9/2/2021 (Permalink)

In our last blog, we introduced National Preparedness Month 2021. The theme for week one is "Make a plan." What does this mean? It means you should talk to your friends and family about how you will communicate before, during, and after a disaster. Make sure to update your plan based on the Centers for Disease Control recommendations due to the Coronavirus.

Ready.gov has an entire page on their website dedicated to making a plan for your family filled with valuable content & resources. Here are the four steps to consider. 

Step 1: Put a plan together by discussing the questions below with your family, friends or household to start your emergency plan.

Step 2: Consider specific needs in your household. 

  • As you prepare your plan tailor your plans and supplies to your specific daily living needs and responsibilities. Discuss your needs and responsibilities and how people in the network can assist each other with communication, care of children, business, pets or specific needs like operating medical equipment.

Step 3: Fill out a family emergency plan. 

  • Download the PDF from Ready.gov to use (or to base your own from) by clicking here.

Step 4: Practice your plan with your entire household & family. 

  • Practice makes perfect! Make sure each member of the household knows & understands the plan.

We hope this helped you think through your current plan or how to make a plan for yourself if you didn't already have one! Be sure to check out Ready.gov for additional resources for making a plan.
