We've discussed evacuation plans for businesses, and Family Emergency Readiness... Many of the same principles applied to workplace emergencies can be applied at home and in a neighborhood.  Considering this year's National Preparedness Month Theme (“Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.”) you should not only plan and practice your emergency communication plans, but also evacuation... try expanding this to a neighborhood-wide event, too with a central gathering point and head count, just as a business would, but instead of checking off by department, count off by household... it's a great way to raise awareness and to build a "team spirit" in the neighborhood which can foster better results later in the event of a genuine calamity.

We encourage you to participate in this Presidential national declaration to prepare individuals, families, and communities across the nation. During September, and especially on the September 30 National PrepareAthon! Day, cities and counties across the country are planning events to bring together schools, businesses, city governments, houses of worship, hospitals, individuals, and families to participate in drills and activities for hazards in their areas. We encourage you to register your participation on the America’s PrepareAthon! website.
