Disaster Preparedness:  Evacuation


Be sure to include evacuation as part of your family emergency plan. Choose in advance several potential places to which to evacuate – a friend’s home in another town, a motel or a shelter that may be identified after a specific emergency incident.

If you are told to evacuate by local officials, leave immediately.

• Wear sturdy shoes and appropriate clothing

• Take your emergency supply kit

• Lock your home

• Leave a note telling others when you left and where you are going

• Follow all instructions given by public safety official and use only authorized routes

• Once you are safe, call an out-of-state contact with information about where you are and how you can be reached
