How To Plan In Case Of A Disaster

Next » « Previous


Think about your health needs and be sure they are covered in case a disaster happens. For instance:

  • Always have at least one week's supply of needed drugs.
  • Keep an extra copy of your prescriptions in case you need to refill them in another locality.
  • Keep a copy of your medical records in a safe place in case you cannot access your doctor's office. (The copy will also be helpful to have when you see new doctors.) To learn about keeping your own copy of your medical records, click here.
  • Contact your local emergency board to find out what other preparedness is suggested for your area. For instance, local evacuation plans, or what to do in the event of flooding. If there is no emergency board, contact your local government agency.
