Prepare Your Family and Housemates
Make sure everyone in your household knows what your evacuation zone is and what to do in the event of an emergency, where things are that need to be grabbed, what to shut, and what to move. If you have ever been in a true emergency, you know how hard it is to communicate in an emergency. Do the communicating now.
Below is a template for what to consider doing depending on the amount of time you have. Read it over with the family and personalize it for your needs.
