Evacuate

If you are told to evacuate by local officials, leave immediately

  • Wear sturdy shoes and appropriate clothing.
  • Take your emergency go-bag.
    Follow instructions of public safety officials and use authorized travel routes.
  • Lock your home, if possible.
  • If you have time, leave a note telling others when you left and where you are going.
  • Once you are safe, call your out-of-state contact and tell them where you are.
  • Plan Ahead
  • Identify ahead of time where you could go if you are told to evacuate. Choose several places--a friend's home in another town, a motel, or a shelter.
  • Keep handy the telephone numbers of these places, as well as a road map.
  • Consider the need to take any important prescription medications and medical supplies, as well as important documents with you
