In an emergency, the first people to check on you will more than likely be your friends, neighbors and family.
Be sure that you include them in your emergency planning.
· Do they know where your emergency supplies are?
· Do they know where you keep the dog’s leash and the cat kennel so that they can get your pets out of your house if needed?
· Do they know where you keep important information that you would need in an emergency?
Take opportunities to get to know your neighbors and include them in your emergency planning.
