Make and emergency checklist

Have an emergency preparedness plan in place for your family.

When it comes to preparedness, one of the most important things you can do is to put together a plan of action

“Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today,” is the message emergency managers have been sharing with people all of the U.S. this month- National Preparedness Month. Somerville Aluminum encourages all area residents to take steps to make an emergency plan and know what to do during an emergency.

  •     Know risks for where you live.
  •     Meet with family or household members.
  •     Discuss how to prepare and respond to emergencies that are most likely to happen at home or work.
  •     Identify responsibilities for each household member and plan to work together as a team.
  •     Have an individual and family preparedness plan in place.
  •     Practice that plan
  •     If a family member is in the military, plan how to respond if they were deployed.
  •     Put together an emergency kit with water and non-perishable supplies to last for at least three days for all members of household and pets.
  •     Keep an up-to-date contact list for people needing to reach out to during a disaster.
  •     Establish alternative methods of communication in case traditional means are not available.

“When it comes to preparedness, one of the most important things you can do is to put together a plan of action. Whether hurricanes, snowstorms, power outages or flooding occur, having a plan in place can help increase your chance of surviving the chaos during a time of natural disaster,” states David Gropper, co-owner of Somerville Aluminum.

Additionally, today is National PrepareAthon! Day. Families are encouraged to participate by doing a simple, specific action or activity to improve family and household preparedness; or it can be something more elaborate that involves a neighborhood plan, plans at places of worship, entire workplaces or communities.
