Emergency plan

Does your family (or household) have a plan for what you'll do if a natural disaster strikes?

If you have an emergency plan in place:

  • family members will able to respond quickly and safely in a disaster
  • family members will feel reassured that they'll be able to cope if a disaster does strike.

Your plan should cover:

  • how you'll communicate and meet up with each other if you’re separated
  • where you’ll keep your emergency supplies and how you’ll maintain these in the meantime
  • and other important areas.
