Family Disaster Plan

  • The Family Disaster Plan is a resource developed by the University of Missouri.  Please download and save the file to your hard drive before filling it out in order to protect your privacy.

    A family disaster plan tells everyone in the household what they will do during an emergency. Having a plan reduces the stress of coping with the aftermath of a disaster.

    Using this booklet, families can easily assemble information about family members and pets, belongings and the dwelling, which may not be readily available following a disaster. This booklet is by no means inclusive of every situation, so families may need to include additional details specific to their needs.  Follow the link below to view and download a copy for your family.

There are other great weather alert Apps available to download to your smartphone, and weather radios for purchase. Occasionally we are asked if the City of Fremont Hills has storm sirens, and that answer is that we do not.  The primary function of storm sirens is to alert people who are outside, and they are considered old technology (cities who have them tend not to replace them when they are in disrepair and in need of replacement).
There’s no time like the present to get your storm-ready plan in place.
