Emergency Plans for Families

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security provides several disaster and emergency-related resources, including those for disaster/emergency preparedness. The FEMA website, available in multiple languages, provides updates on recent disasters, links to find and apply for assistance, and public service announcements/seasonal safety information and action steps, such as templates and sharable materials for emergency plans for parents, kids, pets and commuters. These resources offer activities, webinars, and research, plus tips for building an emergency kit, and more. 

Ready.gov also provides emergency preparedness resources in multiple languages. Use the Language drop-down found on the upper right hand corner of the home page.

From the CDC's Center for Preparedness and Response, you can download and share resources such as Ready Wrigley, a collection of checklists, books and posters, some available in Spanish, that help families plan for emergencies, and the All-Hazards Preparedness Guide, a comprehensive document that outlines the steps families should follow before, during, and after specific hazards.
