Emergency Plan




So, I was digging around on the ready.gov website and I came across a cool widget (Quick Share) that allows you to generate an email text containing emergency contact info for you to share with family, friends, etc.  In addition to your info, it shares your emergency contact, out-of-town contact, and neighborhood meeting place. Right away I thought this was winner; everyone in your circle has everyone else’s contact info already save to their iphone, blackberry, laptop, etc. before any emergency arises. When you consider how fast telephone switchboards get overloaded and cell phone towers shut down after a major emergency having a prearranged meeting place along with contact info for everyone is vital.
