Family Disaster Plans (Fifth in a series on disaster planning)



This is the fifth in a series of articles on disaster preparedness and how to safeguard your community, save lives and minimize damage.


In addition to the plan you are developing for your manufactured home community, you should encourage each resident family to have its own disaster plan in place.  


Residents should know what types of disaster could occur, and what they can do about each one.  A community newsletter is a good way to educate residents, and so are community meetings.


Disaster Preparedness: Hazardous Materials (4th of 8 articles)

This is the fourth of eight articles on disaster preparedness  and how  to  safeguard your community, save lives and minimize damage.

Hazardous materials are anything that can be a risk to life, health or property.  They can be chemical, biological or physical.  Some are intended for one safe use, but can be dangerous if used another way.  Gasoline, for example, when used in a car is relatively safe, but if it’s spilled on the ground or gets into drinking water it can be dangerous.
