6 Tips for Evacuating in Our Moment of Triumph

Share

#1. Stay Calm and Do Your Research

The first thing to do is to evacuate in calm and think about the preparations of your home. If you find yourself in this situation and you know how to prepare, then the process will go smoother. If the thought of a fire is new for you, then it’s important to do a little research about what to do when there’s a fire in your area. No one wants to find themselves in a situation like this, but if it does happen, you want to be able to act fast.

#2. Practice Your Evacuation Drill at Home

If you’re currently not in an evacuation drill, it is recommended that you start practicing at home. Doing this will increase your sense of urgency and confidence in these situations. If there’s a fire at your local school, mall or workplace, chances are you will be prepared. You can also practice with family and friends. The more you practice, the more confident you will be in a real situation.
Practice your evacuation drill like you would in a real situation, including wearing the same clothing. You can even practice using your elevator or escalator to evacuate, if you have access to these. You can measure the amount of time it takes to do your routine so this will give you insight in regards to how long it might take in a real emergency. Finally, remember that if you’ve put these plans into action, this will make things less complicated during a real situation.
Be sure to practice where each member of your family is supposed to go when you’re in an evacuation situation. This will reduce confusion and anxiety. For example, if there is a fire or gas leak at home, you should decide who will go to the neighbor’s or a relative’s house, who stays with the kids and how you’ll tell everyone where to meet.

#3. Know the Government Guidelines for Evacuation

There is no set guideline for evacuation, but the general idea is that everyone should know where the exits are and how to use them. The practice of evacuation drills will give you experience on what to do when there’s a fire. This should be practiced at home and anywhere else you might be. Being prepared will help you stay calm and evacuate when necessary. The more you practice, the better you’ll be in a real situation.

#4. Prepare Yourself and Those Around You to Deal with Disasters

Disasters can cause many issues, but they can be dealt with if you stay prepared. You should be prepared for lack of food, power and clean water. Staying positive will help you mentally. Helping others will show your kindness and humanity. Being realistic about a situation will allow you to make the best decisions when there’s no one around to guide you. Always remember to be prepared for the situation.
Crisis Preparation
Disasters can strike your home, work or school. You should be prepared for possible disasters at these locations. If you live in an area that gets struck often by storms, you should have a plan for shelter and water. Make sure to have flashlights, batteries and lanterns in case the power goes out. I recommend keeping a 3-day supply of water per person (in bottles or water purifiers) and food that is easy to eat and carry such as granola bars and trail mix. A wastebasket or bags are also necessary for storage.

#5. Plan Ahead With a Disaster Supplies Kit #6. Have a Backup Plan!

You should have a plan in case the power goes out or your phone service is disrupted. A Bug Out Bags (BOB) may also be an idea and having a torch or flashlight that is water-proof will allow you to get through the night. An essential oils kit with a candle, matches and an eye-dropper will be a good idea. This can help you create your own light for the night. These may or may not be easy to obtain should you need to evacuate your home. To have a back up plan, have water-proof bags and supplies along with matches and extra batteries in case your flashlight fails.

Bug-Out-Bag is a term used for prepping and emergency recovery supplies, often carried in a backpack or other bag. The term was coined by prepper and survivalist Jim Cobb and popularized by Cobb’s book Cold Dead Fingers (ISBN: 0307394618). The original slang “bug out bag” meant “to bug out”, to flee.
