If A Disaster Happens ...


If A Disaster Happens:

· Remain calm and patient. Put your plan into action.

· Check for injuries.

· Give first aid and get help for seriously injured people.

· Listen to your battery powered radio for news and instructions. Tune to KAIR Radio 93.7.

· Evacuate if advised to do so. Wear protective clothing and sturdy shoes. You may also be asked to "Shelter-in-Place."

· Check for damage in your home.

· Use flashlights -- do not light matches or turn on electrical switches if you suspect damage.

· Check for fires, fire hazards, and other household hazards.

· Sniff for gas leaks starting at the water heater. If you smell gas or suspect a leak turn off the main gas valve, open windows, and get everyone outside quickly.

· Shut off any other damaged utilities. If not damaged, you may leave utilities on.

· Clean up spilled medicines, bleaches, gasoline, and other flammable liquids immediately.

· Locate your 72 hour kit or preparedness supplies and put them in a safe location.

Remember to:

· Confine or secure your pets.

· Call your family contact - Use your cell phone sparingly to conserve the battery's charge.

· Check on your neighbors, especially elderly or disabled persons.

· Make sure you have an adequate water supply in case service is cut off.

· Stay away from downed power lines.

· Do not turn on utilities. That should only be done by a trained utility employee.
