5) Determine a Meeting Place
When your family is spread out during your daily routines of work, school etc. it’s important to have designated meeting places in case of emergency. Make sure to have alternates if some routes are impassable. Choose one location close to your home and inform all family members about this place. In case of an emergency, you need to arrange to meet at the closest location possible and have an out of town location as a backup in case the disaster prevents you from meeting at the first location. During emergencies, text messages are much more dependable than phone calls. Stay tuned to a local news radio station for up to the minute information. Also, if you are aware of impending danger or a storm, try to communicate before the worst happens so all family members know to go the designated meeting place, instead of going home.
