Disaster Planning 101 Part 2
Who do you call before the lights go out?
Whether you come from a family with loving or dysfunctional parents, there comes a time when you need each other. All feelings aside, what would you do if there were a disaster? Do you have a way to communicate with your parents, siblings and children?
What is your family communication plan of ACTION? According to Pew Research one in eight of Americans between ages 40 and 60 are still raising children and caring for an aging parent. Having to attend to kids at school with after school activities, or aging parents who live miles away or with brothers and sisters scattered in every direction- You need a plan to reach one another in matter of minutes?
The recent disasters like earthquakes, floods and hurricanes were a wake up call for many families who were ill-prepared. But what about ice storms, dust storms, flooding or power outages- will you be prepared?
It is especially important for the elderly family member who may live miles away to have a well-rehearsed plan in place. As a daughter or Mom, you worry that they may be confused or in harms way and you fear that you won’t know how to find them or help them in an emergency.
It is time to get that big family chain letter going with outlines for point person in the family in case of disaster or emergency. We need to plan ahead, don’t procrastinate but DO IT NOW. Your family communication blueprint will work in any snow storm, hurricane, power outage or every day catastrophe where they must evacuate their home.
