Would you be ready if there was an emergency? Be prepared: throughout September there will be activities across the country to promote emergency preparedness.

Week 1: How To:
Reconnect with Family After a Disaster
Your family may not be together when a disaster strikes so it’s important to plan how you will contact one another in advance. Check out the links below for tips and resources to help your loved ones reconnect after a disaster.
Make sure you think about ICE (In Case of Emergency)
information. What do you want first responders to know about your medical needs and who they should call, when you are unable to tell them? You can also search your smart phone for “In Case of Emergency” apps.
After a disaster, letting your family and friends know that you are safe and well can bring your loved ones great peace of mind. If your community has experienced a disaster, register on the American Red Cross Safe and Well website
. You may also register by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) and select the prompt for "Disaster."
