SafetyThe first consideration is the safety of people. For the drill, remember to get down on your hands and knees, preferable under a desk or piece of furniture, or next to an interior wall with your arms above your head. If you have to evacuate where you are, have a plan in advance. Locate emergency food, water and first aid materials. Know how to turn off utilities if they are dangerous. Have an outdoor meeting place for your family. If you are usually in different places, designate a place to eventually meet.
Important InformationFor your continuing safety, make not of important information: emergency phone numbers, names and addresses, information regarding utilities, medical history and current medications, vehicle information, and banking information. What to keep in a fire-proof safe: birth certificates, ownership certificates, insurance policies, wills, and a household inventory with photographs. Think about how secure you will feel when you have done these things and are prepared.
