But I’m of the opinion that in an emergency, having a solid plan is where you gain real peace-of-mind and avoid needless panic. I also work from the perspective that the absolute most important thing in an emergency is getting my family together as quickly and efficiently as possible, so we can work as a team. Frankly, not being able to locate or meetup with one of my kids is far more terrifying to me than muddling through a disaster with a sub-par 72 Hour Bag.
So it might not be as sexy as choosing your water filtration, but today you are going to do something just as important. You’re gonna finalize your evacuation, meetup, and home emergency procedures.
You’re going to work with your family to make some important decisions about where you will go and who you will contact in an emergency, and in the process you are going to complete the Family Reference Binder we started in the last article. (If you haven’t read the Family Reference Binder article, please start there.)
As always, modify, adjust or change this framework for your needs.
