Do You Have a Back-to-School Family Emergency Plan?

8/13/2021 (Permalink)

No one ever likes to think that an emergency could happen to them, but the reality is that disaster can strike anytime, anywhere, including while your child is at school.

Even if you never end up needing your family emergency plan, it's best to be prepared just in case. Having a solid plan in place will give you everyday peace of mind and, in the event of an emergency, could save lives.

Emergency Contacts

Make a list of 1-3 trusted emergency contacts who can pick up your child from school in the event that you are unable to. Be sure to notify these people and get their permission. Review the list with your child to ensure they're comfortable with these people, know how to contact them by phone, and know what their vehicle looks like.

Communicate with the School

Ensure your child's school is kept up to date about who is allowed to pick them up. They'll need correct contact information and sometimes require a form of identification for their records. Many schools have materials they distribute to indicate designated pick up areas and other important info.

Drop Off Location

If none of the emergency contacts can be reached by phone or they're unable to pick your child up in a timely manner, alternative transportation may have to be arranged. Be sure to have a designated alternative drop-off spot. This could be a friend or relative's house, or another trusted location. Be sure your child knows the location, their current address, and phone number so that they can accurately tell authorities how to get there safely and to contact you.

Reevaluate Each Year

As your child ages, changes schools, or your family moves, it's smart to update your plan annually.

Volunteer Review

"Loaves and Fishes of Clarksville was in need of additional help to prepare and serve meals. A call was put out and a member of SERVPRO management asked the staff for volunteers. In walked the cavalry! David, Lorenzo, and RJ took on food prep tasks like pros, served the guests with kindness and big smiles, and helped get the kitchen standing tall before they left. Thank you gentlemen and thank you SERVPRO! THE PROFESSIONALS WHO SERVE!"
