Emergency Plan for Families

I have found a Canadian website that will help you to make an emergency plan for your family.

This website will:
"help you and your family know what to do in case of an emergency. Every household needs an emergency plan.
It will take you about 20 minutes to complete your personalized plan online. You can then print it out.

Before starting your home emergency plan, you will need to think about:

Safe exits from home and neighbourhood
Meeting places to reunite with family or roommates
Designated person to pick up children should you be unavailable
Contact persons close-by and out-of-town
Health information
Place for your pet to stay
Risks in your region
Location of your fire extinguisher, water valve, electrical box, gas valve and floor drain "

This is an important thing for every family to "have a plan". Take a few moments and check it out. This is a simple thing that can help your family.

Give me just 2 more weeks and then I will have time to plan for an emergency! We had it all mapped out in the old house, our exit routes, etc. but have not done it here yet. Hopefully there will be no emergencies before I finish this class.
