An Emergency and Communication Plan for Chesapeake Residents
Chesapeake start with an emergency plan today, a communication plan. You and your family may not be together if a disaster strikes your area. You will need to know how you will contact one another and to reconnect if you are separated. Establish a family meeting place that is easy to find and familiar. Ready.gov advises ways to put your emergency plan in action today.
Chesapeake, VA has an alert system in place to reach you during an emergency situation. Chesapeake residents need to sign up now to receive the alerts, even if you were already registered with the old system.
First, schedule a time to meet with your family, friends, or household members to discuss these questions.
- Am I set up to receive emergency alerts and warnings.
- What is my shelter plan? Taking appropriate shelter is critical in times of disaster.
- What is my evacuation route? Plan how you will leave and where you will go if you are advised to evacuate.
- How will our family/household communicate? Download the Family Emergency Plan
