- Plan places where your family will meet, both within and outside of your immediate neighborhood. Use the Family Emergency Plan to decide these locations before a disaster;
- Take your emergency supply kit unless you have reason to believe it has been contaminated;
- If you have a car, keep a full tank of gas in it if an evacuation seems likely. Keep a half tank of gas in it at all times in case of an unexpected need to evacuate. Gas stations may be closed during emergencies and unable to pump gas during power outages; and
- If you do not have a car, plan how you will leave if you have to. Make arrangements with family, friends or your local government.
