According to the American Red Cross, writing such a plan has six steps:

—Commit to preparedness by involving the homeowners’ or neighborhood association board.
—Conduct a hazard vulnerability assessment. Said George Sullivan, an expert in disaster preparedness for the American Red Cross, “A lot of people write an emergency response plan based on something that happened to someone else.”
—Develop the plan. If you already have one, revisit it and ask the big “what if” questions.
—Test your plan through drills.
—Make preparedness top of mind through newsletters, bill inserts and emails.
—Help others. Consider adopting a local school or church, or hosting a blood drive. —Gazette staff
