Take the 10-minute evacuation challenge – if you had to get out of your house in 10 minutes, do you know what you would take with you?

February 20, 2011

You will probably never have to evacuate your home, but if you did, have you ever thought what you would take with you?

Do you have a family plan? What is important? What can’t be replaced? What should be left behind? Ten minutes is a short amount of time and will be quickly wasted if you have not prepared in advance. This short video tells the story of two different families, one who has developed a family evacuation plan and the other, well, they haven’t a clue!

This video is a great training video for your staff and an excellent motivational training tool. You could easily show this at a staff meeting or a “lunch and learn” session that promotes home and family preparedness.

The key messages of the film:
1. Develop a plan – what you take and who packs what.
2. Prepack emergency supplies, records and important family documents and pictures.
3. Prepare a home inventory of all of your possessions. A video or photos to document the inventory is also helpful.
4. Have an emergency contact who is out of the area who can serve as a communication hub for you.

Start your week by taking the challenge!  Let me know how you do!
