ASSIGNMENT: Pick an Emergency Meeting Spot
When an emergency happens, the last thing you want to do is play a frantic game of hide-and-seek with the people you care about most.
Take the time to gather your family now, and designate two meeting spots to use in case of an emergency: one just outside your home and one just outside your neighborhood, the Federal Emergency Management Agency suggests.
The spot just outside your home can be useful in an emergency that forces you to escape your home (like a house fire), while the meeting place outside your neighborhood may come in handy in case your neighborhood is evacuated (due to a hurricane or other threat).
When you practice yourhome escape plan, practice using these emergency meeting spots as well, so that everyone is familiar with where to go to find one another.
