We all hope it never comes to it, but if you’re ever evacuated from your home (be it because of a natural disaster or another emergency), your best bet is to be prepared for it. With this in mind, this post will go over a few tips you should follow to prepare and to react appropriately during an evacuation.

Evacuation Tips

Plan a Strategy with Your Family

Create a disaster plan in which you go over the evacuation routes you should take, the safe spots you should go to, and more. Get your family involved so you’re all in the loop about it.

Conduct Drills at Home

Tied to the point above, you can also prepare for an emergency at home by conducting drills. This way, you’ll be able to practice and improve your reaction and response time in a disaster.

Have an Emergency Kit Ready

If you’re being evacuated, you’ll want to have everything you need to endure the next few days. An emergency kit, with clothing, food, a first-aid kit, and other helpful tools, can be a lifesaver.

Designate a Destination

Another important part of an evacuation is knowing where to go. This is why you should research any shelters near your home and the routes you can take to get there beforehand.

Follow Instructions

In an evacuation, you’ll want to follow the instructions and safety measures given by the authority figures. This way, you and others will have a better chance of staying safe.

Take Important Information with You

There’s some information that should be with you in an emergency. For example, the local police’s number, your insurance, or relatives’/friends’ contact information can be very useful in a disaster.

Stay In Touch

Being informed of what’s going on around you during a disastrous situation can be very valuable. Use a radio or cell phone to learn more about the emergency and to contact friends and relatives.
