Guide to Preparedness Now - Sheltering in Place

 
"Shelter-in-place" simply means to take immediate shelter where you are when the emergency/disaster strikes.  If you have not already done so, create a shelter at home that is well-stocked with provisions & tools to help you survive the emergency/disaster.   In addition, check with your child's school(s) and your workplace(s) to insure that there is a "shelter-in-place" plan there.

"Evacuate" means that you and your family will leave your home, school, business or someplace in-between and go to a designated shelter.  Make sure everyone knows where to go and what to take

It is important to listen to TV or radio for instructions from authorities.  You will be instructed to remain indoors or to evacuate.

 
Where do I prepare to "shelter-in-place"?
  1. At home
    • Choose a room in advance for your shelter. The best room is one with as few windows and doors as possible. A large room, preferably with a water supply.
    • Create a shelter kit including duct tape, first aid supplies, batteries, radio & flashlight.  DO NOT USE this kit except in an emergency/disaster situation.
    • Take a CPR class
  2. At work and/or school
    • Contact your workplaces, your children's schools, nursing homes where you may have family and your local town or city officials to find out what their plans are for "shelter-in-place."
    • Create a shelter kit including duct tape, first aid supplies, batteries, radio & flashlight.  DO NOT USE this kit except in an emergency/disaster situation.
    • Take a CPR class
