Evacuations are more common than many people realize. When evacuations are necessary, local offi cials provide information to the public through the media or by use of sirens or telephone calls. Never ignore an evacuation warning. Timely evacuation is critical to the safety of your Family.

Safe and eff ective evacuation requires planning ahead—There may be no advance warning
• If you are on base follow your established command procedure.
• Know local procedures such as Noncombatant Evacuation Operations.
• Be sure your emergency status accountability information is included in your evacuation kit.
• If you don’t have access to a vehicle, make other arrangements ahead of time.
• Plan how you will care for your animals (see July).
• Develop a Family communication procedure in case you are separated.

Actions to Take During an Evacuationimag
• Report your status to your command as soon as you are safely relocated.
• Check on neighbors who may need special assistance.
• Wear sturdy shoes and clothing, such as long pants, long-sleeved shirts and a cap.
• Secure your home.
- Close and lock all doors and windows.
- Turn off gas, electricity and water.
- Unplug nonessential electrical equipment. Leave freezers and refrigerators plugged in unless there is a risk of fl ooding.
• Listen to a radio or TV for local evacuation instructions.
• Be safe on the road.
- Take one car to reduce congestion and delay.
- Follow the recommended evacuation routes and zones; shortcuts may be blocked.
