Home Preparations 

How can we prepare for a storm at home? 

Emergency situations are unpredictable, but there are many things that your family can do to be better prepared in case of a dangerous situation. 

FEMA has helpful tools to help your family prepare together!  

  • Do you have a family communication plan?

There’s a storm coming! What would you pack in your emergency kit? What items can you take, and what items do you need to leave behind?
