- Make a Plan- Your family may not be together during an emergency, so having a plan that everyone is familiar with is important. Make sure you include a meeting place, important phone numbers, and ways to get emergency alerts in your plan.
- Assemble a Kit- Assemble an emergency kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment's notice and take your essentials with you. You may need to survive on your own after an emergency. Know what you need in your kit.
- Stay informed- Emergencies can happen anywhere, anytime. Know what to do before, during, and after an emergency is a critical part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count. Sign up for a local emergency alert system such as the City of Atlanta's NotifyATL, ReadyGeorgia, or local news alerts.
