3) Identify Warnings and Evacuation Routes
When it comes to natural disasters, sirens are generally very inefficient unless you live in an area where storm sirens are essential. These days alerts sent to smart phones are the quickest way to learn of impending danger. However, power outages can knock out cell towers making your smart phone all but useless. For a reasonable price you can purchase a storm radio, which can tune to many emergency channels including N.O.A.A. (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration) for accurate up to the minute information. Know where you’re going if you have to evacuate and map every route possible to get there. Always have a back up plan such as trains or ferries if you can’t get out by car. The most important thing is to be prepared in any event. Being unprepared is how people end up in dire situations.
