Make important decisions like when to leave, what to take, and what to do with pets and animals. Don't leave it until the last minute.
Disasters can happen with little or no warning. How will you and your family get to a safe place? You could be separated from each other. How will you contact each other? Think about how you will protect your pets, important documents and personal mementos.
Plan how you will escape a fire in your home and practise it with your family.
