Preparing for the Unexpected

Devastating attacks on the World Trade Center as well as the war with Iraq have left many citizens concerned about the possibility of future incidents in the United States and their potential impact.

There are things you can do to prepare for emergencies and reduce the stress that you may be experiencing. Taking preparatory action can reassure you and your family that you can exert a measure of control even in the face of such events.

What should you do in the event of an emergency?

  • Remain calm. Think before you act.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Have a Family Preparedness Plan.
  • Stay informed.
  • Shelter-in-place under most circumstances (stay indoors) is recommended.
  • Tune into local radio or TV stations for instructions and information.
  • If an evacuation is ordered, follow the instructions of local officials regarding evacuation routes and the location of shelters.
  • Do not leave your sheltered location or return to the evacuated area until it is deemed safe to do so by local officials
