Preparedness Tip #1

Emergency ContactsMake a list of contact numbers for all your household members.

Be sure to write down important phone numbers that are stored in cell phones, in case you lose yours or your battery runs out of power.  Update this list when information changes, especially phone numbers.  Consider keeping recent photos of all household members together with this list.

A key part of preparedness is making sure your own family and all your employees’ families are ready with an emergency supply kit and a plan complete with meeting places and emergency contact numbers. 

A good place to start is with a checklist or planning guide.  A coalition of Hawai‘i organizations and agencies has created a special preparedness booklet called “Plan To Be Ready.” Filling it out is an excellent way to get your family and all your employees ready for an emergency.
