If someone in your household has unique needs, it's important to incorporate them into your plans.

  • Include any caretakers in the planning process
  • Provide the power company with a list of all power-dependent equipment and plan for an alternate power source

Don't forget about your furry friends!
Don't forget to include your pets in your disaster plans. Take them with you when you evacuate. 

Remember: Pets typically aren't allowed in public shelters unless they are service animals, so make a list of friends, boarding facilities and vets that could keep your pets in case of emergency.
