When faced with a frightening situation, sometimes knowledge, preparation, and communication are the only things standing in the way of you and utter chaos. There are many possible emergency disasters that can occur including fires, floods, and weather related emergencies such as ice storms. At Heavenly Hands Hospice, we want to assist with preparing our patients and families at home before an emergency happens. Here are some ways to keep you and your family safe in case of an emergency.
Do you remember having emergency drills in school?
We also encourage you to conduct drills in your home. The drills that we practice over and over again will help us be able to spring into immediate action. Knowledge of the plan, preparation (performing the drills), and effective communication will allow everyone to weather the storm safely.
