Evacuations from your home or work are more common than many people realize. FEMA urges residents to know their evacuation routes and to heed the direction of local officials taking seriously their instructions to evacuate. According to the Ready Campaign, fires and floods cause evacuations most frequently across the U.S., and almost every year, people along coastlines evacuate as hurricanes approach. In addition, hundreds of times per year, transportation and industrial accidents release harmful substances, forcing many people to leave their homes.
You don’t have to wait for an official evacuation notice to prepare, you can start now. Contact your local emergency management agency (see contact info below) for the evacuation routes in your community.
Additionally, follow these guidelines for evacuation:
