+-How can I prepare my family for a disaster?Click to collapse

It is important to remember that not all emergencies or disasters are going to have the same effects or happen at the most convenient times. Therefore, having a plan can help safeguard you and your family. Town of Tonawanda residents need to prepare now for emergencies and disasters. Having a plan in place will reduce the amount of loss for both property and life. You should meet with all members of your household to discuss your plan. Talk with children about the different hazards and what to do if something should happen. Prepare a disaster supply kit and make sure it is adjusted to the number of people in your household.

Please visit the following link for more information about preparing for an emergency:

+-In the event of a disaster and I have to evacuate my home, where do I go?Click to collapse

If the power is out, you should listen to a battery powered or crank radio for shelter locations for you and your family to relocate. Also listen for evacuation routs specified by local authorities. Shelters will depend upon the location of the emergency. When evacuating, make sure you wear protective clothing, sturdy shoes and have your disaster supply kit.

+-What does it mean to “Shelter-In-Place?”Click to collapse

If the authorities advise you to Shelter-In-Place, you are to remain in your home or office (wherever you are at the time of the emergency) and protect yourself there. If there is a threat of contaminated outside air be sure to seal doors, windows and vents. Turn off all fans, heating and air-conditioning units. Go to an interior room with few windows if possible. Be sure to take your emergency supply kit with you, unless you believe it has been contaminated. Listen or watch local radio and television stations to stay updated on the latest information.

Mass Care Shelter

Even though mass care shelters often provide water, food, medicine and basic sanitary facilities, you should plan to take your disaster supplies kit with you so you will have the supplies you require. Mass care sheltering can involve living with many people in a confined space, which can be difficult and unpleasant. To avoid conflicts in the stressful situation, it is important to cooperate with shelter managers and others assisting them. Keep in mind that alcoholic beverages and weapons are forbidden in emergency shelters and smoking is restricted.
