Follow these basic steps to develop a family disaster plan:
Gather Information About Hazards
If you would like information on what type of disasters could occur, and how you should respond, please call the National Weather Service office 937-898-4541 or the American Red Cross at 937-222-6711.
Most important, be alert! Be prepared! When weather is threatening, stay tuned to a local radio or television station for weather updates. If a tornado is threatening Fairborn, emergency sirens will sound. Listen for a constant tone with very little variation in pitch. The siren will sound for approximately 3 minutes when a tornado has been sighted within 5 miles of the City. The sirens will not sound an "all-clear" signal. These sirens are tested on the first Monday of every month.
You can prepare for a tornado by knowing the difference between a tornado watch and a tornado warning.
WHEN A WARNING IS ISSUED, GO TO A SAFE PLACE SUCH AS A BASEMENT OR A HALLWAY TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM GLASS OR FLYING OBJECTS.
Create A Family Plan
Discuss the information you have gathered. In case of an emergency, establish two (2) family meeting places -
locations outside of your home. Discuss what you would do if you needed to evacuate your home.
Implement Your Plan
- Keep emergency telephone numbers by the phones;
- Install smoke detectors in your home, and keep fire extinguishers handy;
- Teach your children how and when to call 9-1-1;
- Inspect your home for potential hazards (items that can move, fall, break, or catch fire). Correct any problems you discover;
- Have your family learn basic CPR, first-aid, how to use a fire extinguisher, and how and when to turn off water, gas, and electricity in your home;
- Assemble a disaster supply kit in the trunk of your vehicle;
- Keep important family documents in waterproof containers.
Assemble A Disaster Supply Kit
- A 3-day supply of water (1 gallon/person/day);
- Food that requires no refrigeration, preparation or cooking, and little or no water (ready to eat canned meats, fruits, and vegetables). Remember to pack a manual can opener;
- One change of clothing and footwear per person;
- A first-aid kit, including prescription medicines;
- Emergency tools, including a battery powered NOAA Weather Radio (available at local electronic stores), a portable radio, flashlight, and plenty of extra batteries;
- An extra set of car keys;
- A credit card or cash;
- Special items for infants, elderly, or disabled family members;
- Important family documents such as wills, insurances, contracts, deeds, bank account information, ID's, immunization records, and important telephone numbers.
