All emergency volunteers and their families need to be prepared

before they can go help others.


Don’t forget to check your emergency kits/go bags:

Replace medicines, batteries, and food as needed. What might you need to add?


This is also a good time to review your communication plans:

Have any of your contacts or phone numbers changed?

Does everyone have a hard copy of the plan, in case phone batteries die?
