Taking Shelter

It is important for individuals and families to have premade plans for sheltering at home or events requiring evacuation. Plans should incorporate emergency supply kits, important papers, evacuation routes, and methods of communication. This includes plans for wildfires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and severe local storms that could shut down roadways. Examples of plans and tool kits can be found at Ready Georgia.
