Make a Disaster Emergency Plan in Only 20 Minutes for Free

Emergencies by their very nature happen when you don’t expect them and often when families are not together. When disaster hits you need to think about your kids at school, or elderly parents across town, or your wife at home or at her workplace. If telephones don’t work or even if some neighbourhoods aren’t accessible, what can you do, what will you do? Here is how you can create a plan in only 20 minutes.

Emergencies by their very nature happen when you don’t expect them and often when families are not together.  When disaster hits you need to think about your kids at school, or elderly parents across town, or your wife at home or at her workplace. If telephones don’t work or even if some neighbourhoods aren’t accessible, what can you do, what will you do?

It is for these reasons that an emergency plan can save you time and make an emergency situation less stressful.

Fortunately, the Canadian government has an online resource to help you create your emergency plan in only 20 minutes. You can start by viewing their short video “Make an Emergency Plan” located at http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/sm/video3-eng.aspx.

Then you can use their online tool to create your family emergency plan and print it off.

The government suggests that before beginning you give some thought to:

§  The safe exits from your home, neighbourhood and workplace

§  Easily accessible meeting places to reunite with family or roommates

§  Designated person(s) to pick up children should you be unavailable

§  Contact persons both close-by and out-of-town

§  Health and insurance information

§  Places for your pet to stay

§  Risks in your region

§  Location of your fire extinguisher, water valve, electrical panel, gas valve and floor drain

Start now by going to http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/knw/plan/mrgnc-pln-eng.aspx.

Alternatively, you can download an emergency plan form in PDF format from http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/_fl/pub/ep-gd-prprtn-eng.pdf, print it out and fill it out in pen.

That’s good planning!
