SAFETY TIPS for the MONTH
HOW TO PREPARE FOR AN EMERGENCY IN YOUR VEHICLE
- Keep a kit of emergency supplies in your car. This kit should have food, water, first aid supplies and other supplies. Find a complete checklist of emergency supply items for your vehicle below.
- Have your emergency plan ready for communicating and getting back together with your family if you are separated during a disaster.
- Keep a full tank of gas in your car if an evacuation seems possible or likely. Gas stations may be closed in emergencies and unable to pump gas during power outages. Plan to take one car per family to reduce traffic and delays on the roads.
- If you are evacuating in your vehicle: • Leave early enough so that you are not trapped by severe weather or poor air quality. • Follow recommended evacuation routes (avoid shortcuts as they may be blocked) • Watch out for downed power lines and washed-out roads and bridges. Do not drive into flooded areas.Don’t burn on dry or windy days.
