Set a Family Communication Plan


Set a Family Communication Plan

If a wildfire threatens your home or town, you may have only a moment's notice to get what you need and get out. Creating a communication plan so that all members of your household know who to contact in an emergency can help save their lives.

  • Use this handy download FindYourFive_85x11.pdfproduced by the Nevada County Office of Emergency Services to help you increase your emergency preparedness by sharing your plan with five trusted Emergency Allies.
  • Consider installing family management apps that provide real-time location sharing on mobile devices so you know where your loved ones are in the event of an emergency. WhatsApp, Life360, and Verizon Smart Family are some examples.
