July - Family Communication Plan - Be Prepared for Disasters and Emergencies

Being prepared for disasters and emergencies can seem like a big job. Not knowing where to start prevents us from starting at all…do1thing is a 12 month program that makes it easy for you to prepare yourself, your family and community for emergencies or disasters. Join SOCIL monthly as we do1thing to prepare:

July The Goal: Have the ability to communicate with family members during a disaster.

Choose one of the following things to do this month to become better prepared:

  • Have a phone with a cord and car charger for your cell phone standing by in case of a power failure.
  • Develop a plan for how your family will stay in touch during a disaster.
  • Program In Case of Emergency (ICE) numbers into all family cell phones.
