If an event occurs near your home
- Check for damage using flashlights only. Do not use combustible materials or turn on electrical switches.
- Check for fire and gas leaks.
- In the case of a gas leak, evacuate all from the building. If possible, open windows and turn off the gas valve.
- Check on neighbors, especially the elderly, disabled, or infirmed.
- Call family contact. Do not use phones unless necessary. This allows open lines for emergency workers to use.
