1. Consider Your Family's NeedsA general disaster preparedness plan is okay, but try to tailor it so that it addresses the unique needs of your family members. For example, if you have someone in your family with limited mobility, try to find a shelter that offers ADA showers. If anyone in your family takes medication on a regular basis, try to obtain extra beforehand in case you cannot get to the pharmacy for a while.
2. Pack Emergency SuppliesAmong the many emergency supplies you may need are:
- Drinking water
- Nonperishable food
- First-aid kit
- Extra clothing and blankets
