Get everyone in your home together. Find all doors and windows that lead outside and check to make sure they all open easily.
Windows or doors that have security bars or window guards should be installed with emergency release devices.
Every room should have two ways out. Practice what you would do and how you would get out if either the window or door was blocked.
Decide on a meeting place that’s a short distance outside the house.
Does anyone in your house need assistance. Create a specific plan for them.

Take photos of your home and put them in waterproof bag.
