How to pick an emergency meeting place

Emergency meeting places are an important part of any emergency plan. It’s recommended that your family has two designated meeting places: one just outside your home and one just outside your neighborhood. 

When deciding where to meet near your home, make sure it’s far enough away that the emergency won’t pose an immediate danger. Some good options could include the end of your driveway, a neighbor’s house, the corner of your street or the far edge of your property. 

When choosing a meeting place outside your neighborhood, you should take into consideration the various dangers a disaster may pose in the event your community is evacuated. For instance, pick a spot far away from rivers and lakes in case of flooding. 

Above all, you should make sure to choose a location all family members are familiar with and know how to get to in case of an evacuation.
