Developing Your Emergency Plan & Your Family/Household Living Needs
While planning your emergency plan, you should consider specific needs of those family/household members. You can tailor it and your supplies to those specific daily living needs and responsibilities.
Discuss these specifics with each other and determine how you can assist each other with communication, taking care of the children, the business, the pets, and even specific needs like the operation of durable medical equipment.
It is recommended to create your own personal network for specific areas where you will need help. These factors are important to remember when developing your plan.
- Different ages of members within your household
- Dietary needs
- Medical needs that include prescriptions & equipment
- Responsibilities for assisting others
- Disabilities or access and functional needs that include devices & equipment
- Locations frequented
- Languages spoken
- Cultural and religious considerations
- Pets or service animals
- Households and school aged children
