Don’t wait to talk to your friends, family, and neighbors about their emergency plans. Look for the Ready, Set, Go! Handbook in the mail or print one here. Every minute you spend signing up for emergency alerts, creating a go bag, and planning your evacuation routes can save time in an emergency when seconds count. 

The more connected we are, the more likely we are to survive an emergency. Find five emergency allies and be one for others. Consider specific ways people in your life communicate and have a specific plan for those with access & functional needs.
