Are you prepared for the “Big One”? Are you and your kids prepared for the next earthquake? Think about a communications plan for your family. Choose someone who does not live with you (preferably an out-of-town relative or friend) whom you and other family members can contact to check on each other in the event that you are separated during a disaster. Carry that person’s contact information in your purse or wallet. Make sure children know their last name, phone number, address, and number for the out-oftown contact person. Make sure every member of your family knows an alternate route home. If family members can’t get home, designate a meeting place. For more information, please call Stephanie Duda, Safeguard the Children Chairperson at the parish office.
