* 3. If local authorities told me to evacuate, I would wait to see if the situation worsened, then decide.

* 4. Every family member should be familiar with our emergency plan since they each play an important role.

* 5. It’s a good idea to identify a centrally located room in my house or space in my basement, in case me and my family need to “shelter in place.”

* 6. If I need to go to public emergency shelter, my pets will definitely be allowed to come to the shelter too.

* 7. It’s not a good idea to keep emergency cash at home because I can always access an ATM during an emergency.

* 9. I should have a first aid kit at home, even if my doctor is nearby.
