Mothers of all ages know about dealing with emergencies. But there are some specific things that moms with young children, or elders with unique needs in the home can think about to deal with their unique situations:

- Do I know what my community’s emergency plans and resources are?
- Have I made a plan for communicating with my family members if we are not together when an emergency happens?
- Do I have the emergency supplies I need both to stay in my house and if I have to evacuate?
