Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness

No one wants to experience an emergency, but it's best to be prepared. Here are some tips from the American College of Emergency Physicians that all members of your household should know:

  • Keep a first-aid kit in your home, as well as in your car.

  • Know the warning signs for conditions such as stroke or heart attack.

  • Organize your family's medical information. You should keep a list of medications and dosages that are taken by you and other family members.

  • Look through your house for safety hazards and eliminate them.

  • Take a first-aid class.

  • Keep emergency numbers near the telephones in your home.
