Common Craft "Personal Emergency Plan" Video

Emergencies happen when we least expect them and few understand the benefits of having a plan for how to react. This video from Common Craft uses three scenarios to introduce what should be in your emergency plan. It includes:

* Why a plan is important
* What to do if your family is separated in an emergency
* What to do if you must evacuate or stay home
* What to remember for those with special needs

Never forget that emergencies can happen at any time of year, any day of the year, and for any number of reasons. Please take a few minutes and be thoughtful and mindful of the actions you should do in order to become as prepared as you can be for the unexpected. Your life may depend on it.
