Family Disaster Planning

The Family Disaster Planning website, brought to you by the State of Florida, helps to better prepare families for future disasters by helping to create your own personalized Family Disaster Plan. In a major disaster, emergency workers may not be able to reach everyone right away, and in some cases it may take 3 or more days for help to arrive. What would you do if you had no electricity, no gas, no water and no telephone service? Having a plan for your family and their needs will help to ensure their safety and comfort in difficult times.

On the website you are asked to provide information about your home, family and pets. From this information, the website creates your own personalized Family Disaster Plan that you can print out and save for future emergencies. The plan includes recommended amounts of food and water, up to date information about evacuation techniques, and checklists of important steps to take.

At the Family Disaster Planning website you can obtain up to the minute weather information as well as a wealth of other resources concerning all types of emergency situations.
