Family Communication Plan for Emergencies

— Written By

All families need a plan for how they will communicate during times of emergencies. During disasters, you may be separated from your family. You may have family that lives out of town, state, or country that you will want to contact and let them know you are okay. Unfortunately, during emergencies, normal communication avenues such as phones and computers may not be reliable.

Before an emergency happens, make certain that you and your family make your Emergency Communication Plan by collecting contact information, sharing a copy of that information with each other, and practicing how you will communicate (through a variety of methods — phone, text, email, social media) when an emergency occurs.
