Did you know that you should have at least one hard wired land line phone? In event of power interruptions your wireless home phone along with your mobile phone may not work while a traditional phone with a wired handset may work.

Do you use an electric can opener? If so do you have a manual one to use in case you loose power? Do you have a radio that runs on batteries? Do you have batteries that fit it? Do you have a copy of your schools emergency plan? How long would it take you to access your crawl space in the event of a tornado? Are there things blocking the entrance that could slow you down? If you have an emergency at your home and have to evacuate it do your children know where to meet when they leave?
