YOUR EMERGENCY GAME PLAN
Author: Shawn Tipping, Sarah Tipping, Robert Harris
Most first responders will tell you that, during the first hours, days, and sometimes weeks of a mass casualty disaster, they will be unable to help everyone immediately. Overwhelmed by people needing medical care, food, water, and shelter, the emergency response system quickly breaks down. You must be prepared to care for yourself and the people you care about for an extended period.
The world we live in is unpredictable. Natural and man-made disasters can occur anywhere at any time. Hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, floods, fires, civil unrest, chemical spills, and blackouts constantly threaten our safety and well-being.
When the unimaginable becomes reality, you may find yourself without electricity, food, water, gas, or any means of communication. The last thing you want to be without is a plan.
Your emergency game plan is your disaster preparation and response guide. Its purpose is to give you confidence in knowing what to do before, during, and after any potential emergency or disaster. It will provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing you are prepared to keep your family safe.
Start now to create a straightforward course of action for your family. You may not be able to control everything, but you can prepare for anything.
