Be Prepared

Do you have a packed bag ready near your favorite exit door? Emergency Preparedness includes creating and sharing an evacuation plan for special attention to care for our most vulnerable family and friends.

When planning, consider the following:

  • How will my family/household get emergency alerts and warnings?
  • How will my family/household get to safe locations for relevant emergencies?
  • How will my family/household get in touch if cell phone, internet, or landline doesn’t work?
  • How will I let loved ones know I am safe?
  • How will the family/household get to a meeting place after the emergency?

3rd Step

Create and Share an Evacuation Plan

Notes from the Author

Organized by FEMA, the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System Integ(IPAWS) is the Nation’s alert and warning infrastructure. It provides an effective way to alert and warn the public about emergencies using the Emergency Alert System (EAS), Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards, and other public alerting systems from a single interface. IPAWS is used to send notifications for three alert categories — Presidential, AMBER, and Imminent Threat.
