Got A Tip?




When disaster strikes, you and your family might not all be in the same place esp. if you're dealing with something unpredictable like an earthquake. That's why it's a good idea to have a meet-up spot, like a school cafeteria or local sports stadium. If you can't get home, go there instead.

This is a good tip. I'd say that even if you don't live in a high-risk area, you should plan with your family in case of blackout, fire or other unexpected event. Try to make your meetup spot somewhere accessible by foot in case cars or public transport is shut down.
