What To Do When You’re Ordered To Evacuate

Instead of running in circles, do these three things when ordered to evacuate:

  1. Look at your emergency plan to know where your nearest shelter is and the route you’re going to take. Get your emergency bag.
  2. Call friends and family who you have designated in your emergency plan that you will be evacuating, and when, so they know you’re leaving your home.
  3. If you have time, prep your home: roll up rugs and stand them on end. Close windows and close interior and exterior doors. Lock your door when leaving.

    Good information and I would suggest having some extra cash because if the power goes out ATM’s are going to be useless.
