Family Survival Planning Ideas

Hello Family Reunion planners! 

If you're reading this article congratulations! You survived one of the most turbulent eras of this century. 2018 - 2021 has been an era of natural disaster frequency unlike any other time in history. If you survived you must have been doing something right. 

When it comes to surviving unforeseen crisis, we don't want to leave it to chance. That said, this week I gathered the family together and we review our disaster contingencies to improve our family response to pending emergency alerts and warnings and sharpen our survival skills. I must say, I'm so glad we did!


FAMILY SURVIVAL PLANNING TIPS

Family reunions are a great opportunity to make sure everyone is on the same page as to what to do if they find themselves in the middle of an emergency situation include a natural disaster or pandemic upsurge. Gathering as a family group gives you the opportunity to consider various scenerios and address the special needs each family member has. Needs you might not normally consider when in the middle of distressing situation.

For example: There are a number of different routes to take and and a variety of things to do depending on exactly what the situation is you're contending with. But some family members cannot maneuver all escape plans and routes as other can. For that reason, always have an emergency contingency plan for each potential emergency or crisis that suits all parties involved based on age, health, handicap, etc.


FAMILY SURVIVAL ITEMS TIPS

So here are some quick tips and essential information links that we found very helpful, including links to kits, tools and supplies.

1. Put together a emergency "Go Bag." An emergency Go Bag is a back pack of items you carry with you when you have to evacuate your home and need to stay in a shelter or your car or even camp outdoors until better living arrangements can be made.  (See Links Below)

2. Store a water and non-perishable food supply for shelter in place situations. (See helpful links below)

3. Put together an emergency contact list including local and remote contacts including medical, disaster emergency contacts as well as close associates and family members.

4. Have varied emergency escape routes planned out.

5. Put together evacuation tools, kits and supplies.

6. Consult with individuals in the family who have survived various emergency situations or disasters and learn from experience.

7. Take advantage of social media to report your status to family and friends.

Here is a comprehensive list of must have items for various emergency situation you might find yourself in. with some very helpful links for putting together an emergency "Go Bag." Other items are listed for disaster contingency planning and evacuation situations.
