Your family may not be together if a disaster strikes, so it is important to know which types of disasters could affect your area. Know how you’ll contact one another and reconnect if separated. Establish a family meeting place that’s familiar and easy to find.

While your child care provider will have a plan to protect your child if an emergency occurs at their care location, Emergency Preparedness starts at home.
