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!
