If family members get separated – maybe the kids are at school or you’re at work or the store – do you know how you’ll get in touch? Foresight provides peace of mind in a wildfire situation. Developing an emergency communication plan is useful at other times too. Put a copy in each person's Go Bag.
The plan should include what each person should do if they are at home, at school, even out shopping as well as...
- At least two phone numbers for family members or friends who live out of the area.
- Arrange with these contacts to coordinate with each other and to be the central point of contact (or communication hub) for your family.
- A meeting place in case family members are separated.
- Specify an alternate meeting place in case the first meeting place isn't possible.
