Home Emergency Planning

Home Emergency Plan Cover

Creating a home emergency plan takes very little time and may help save your life, your family’s or your property during an emergency. Things to think about when creating your plan:

  • Who should I include in my plan (e.g. family members, pets and livestock)?
  • What emergencies could affect me?
  • Where will I go and what will I take if I need to evacuate?
  • Where will I find emergency information and warnings?
  • Where will I meet my family if we are separated (e.g. kids are at school)?
  • How can I prepare my property for emergencies?
  • How can I prepare myself financially for emergencies?
  • How will I plan and prepare for my pets and livestock safety?
  • How often I will practise my plan?

Where can I get a template home emergency plan from?
