During this first week of National Preparedness Month, the Department of Homeland Security is encouraging the public to make and practice an emergency plan. NFPAs Get Ready community toolkit provides materials fire departments and fire and life safety educators can use to reinforce with the public the importance of addressing this potentially life-saving task. The Get Ready kit contains emergency plan cards and emergency plan forms in English and Spanish. The plan form helps individuals plan how they will contact each other if they happen to be separated when a disaster happens. The emergency plan cards are for individuals to fill in with their emergency contact information and keep on them in case of emergency.
