In an emergency you could be stuck at home for three days or more. You probably have most of these things already, and you don’t have to have them all in one place, but you might have to find them in a hurry and/or in the dark. Make a plan to work out what you will need to get your family through.
If you have kids, make sure they’re involved in the planning too. Talk to them in an honest, but not scary, way about what might happen in an emergency, what you can do to keep safe, and what your plan is for if you can’t get home. The more involved they are, the less scared they will be if an emergency does happen.
In an emergency you could be stuck at work, without transport home. Work through the personal workplace emergency plan to work out what you will do.Personal Workplace Emergency Plan
