Setting Up Family Communication Before a Disaster
When we think about being in a major disaster, one of the most disconcerting things is worrying about our family. Are they safe at school, home, and work while we are separated from them? During a major disaster cellphone service will most certainly be interrupted, at least for the first few hours, and this is just the time that you will want to connect with them, of course. Waiting until after a disaster strikes is not the best time to set up a plan to communicate with them.
Creating a communication plan for your family is one of the basic preparedness skills and is the foundation for the rest of your emergency preparations. How can you possibly make sure everyone is safe, and arrange to meet at the designated place if you cannot contact them at all or if they don’t know what to do?
This article will teach you how to go about setting up a plan for communication before a disaster, and how to set up an out of state phone tree that really works. No matter where your family members may be, they will know the procedure for checking in and all will be comforted.
