Preparing for the unexpected before it happens could means the key to surviving beyond doomsday.

You do not want to be unprepared if you need to evacuate. Here are a few tips to consider:
  • Mapping your route ahead can save you time and potentially save your life.
  • Establish a contact who will know where you are going, which direction you are headed and your ETA. Your contact should be out of town and not evacuating, too.
  • Do you know what you are going to do with your pets? Establish an emergency plan and go bag for them, as well.
  • Secure your important papers. In the event of a mass disaster or crossing the border, you may need to provide identification.
Find Shelter
  • Maintaining your body temperature is one of your top priorities. Some ways of staying warm if the electricity goes out involve using your own body heat surrounded by insulation to keep the heat in and the cold out. The most simple way of trapping heat is with a blanket, or you may create a large shelter using mattresses. If you are out in the wilderness and need a quick shelter to regulate your body temperature build a debris shelter.
    You also need to protection from possibleprojectile, such as from a tornado. As you may know, choosing a room without glass windows, or a safe room, is your best option.
Stay Tuned
It is vitally important that you invest in a radio and stay constantly tuned into a local radio station for official reports and instructions. Stay inside your home and do not go outside, unless they tell you that your safety is compromised. If you are told to leave your location for your safety, remember to:
  • Secure any items outside which could damage your home or property
  • Cover your windows and doors.
  • Follow disaster plans established for your pets.
  • If you have time, turn off your home’s gas, electricity and water, and disconnect your appliances to reduce the chance of electrical shock.
  • Grab your disaster supply kit and fill your car with gas.
  • Follow your predetermined evacuation plan, listening for disaster sirens and warning signals along the way. Be prepared to drive 20-50 miles in heavy traffic.
