Do You Have An Emergency Communication Plan For When Disaster Strikes Havertown, PA?
What Is An Emergency Communication Plan And Why Should You Prepare One?
Your family may not be together if a disaster strikes, so it is important to think about the following situations and plan just in case. Consider the following questions when making a plan:
- How will my family/household get emergency alerts and warnings?
- How will my family/household get to safe locations for relevant emergencies?
- How will my family/household get in touch if cell phone, internet, or landline doesn’t work?
- How will I let loved ones know I am safe?
- How will family/household get to a meeting place after the emergency?
Here Are A Few Easy Steps To Start Your Emergency Communication Plan:
- Understand How To Receive Emergency Alerts And Warnings.
Make sure all household members are able to get alerts about an emergency from local officials. Check with your local emergency management agency to see what is available in your area, and learn more about alerts by visiting: ready.gov/alerts.
- Discuss Family Plans For Disasters That May Affect Delaware County, PA And Plan Where To Go.
Plan together in advance so that everyone in the household understands where to go during a different type of disaster like a hurricane, tornado, or flooding.
- Collect Information.
Create a paper copy of the contact information for your family that includes:
- phone (work, cell, office)
- social media
- medical facilities, doctors, service providers
- Identify Information And Pick An Emergency Meeting Place.
Things To Consider:
- Decide on safe, familiar places where your family can go for protection or to reunite.
- Make sure these locations are accessible for household members with disabilities or access and functional needs.

Have regular household meetings to review your emergency plans, communication plans, evacuation plans and meeting place after a disaster, and then practice, just like you would a fire drill.
