This plan will help you and your family prepare for evacuation. It includes valuable information about developing a family plan, what steps to take inside and outside your home, and what to do if trapped by fire. A description of “One Way Evacuation” is provided and language used by public safety personnel during an evacuation is explained.
Every household (or each person in a household) should pack a Go Bag – a collection of items you may need in the event of an evacuation. A Go Bag should be packed in a sturdy, easy-to-carry container such as a backpack or suitcase on wheels. A Go Bag should be easily accessible if you have to leave your home in a hurry. Make sure it is ready to go at all times of the year. Some people keep a bag in each of their vehicles.
