Preparedness Tip #10
A community working together during an emergency makes sense.  

·         Talk to your neighbors about how you can work together during an emergency.

·         Find out if anyone has specialized equipment like a power generator, or expertise such as medical knowledge, that might help in a crisis.

·         Decide who will check on elderly or disabled neighbors.

·         Make back-up plans for children in case you can't get home in an emergency.

Sharing plans and communicating in advance is a great strategy!
