Gather what you and your family will need. You may be away for a few days. Examples of items to take with you are:
Medications and prescription drugs
Toiletry items (toothbrush, comb, soap, etc.)
Glasses and contact lens
Foods required for special diets
Extra clothing for several days
Bedding for each family member (blanket, pillow, sleeping bag)
Portable radio and extra batteries
Flashlight and batteries
Identification such as a driver’s license
Important documents (insurance policies, deed, will, etc.)
Cash, checkbook and credit cards
Magazines, books, small games for children
If you have household pets, leave your pet inside with enough food and water for several days. You may take your pet with you only if you do not plan to stay at a Mass Care Shelter. (Exception to this rule: Service animals for the disabled will be allowed in the Shelter.)
Shelter your livestock, especially dairy animals. Leave enough water and feed for several days.
Shut down your home.
Turn off and unplug all appliances, except for your refrigerator and freezer.
Turn off lights and water faucets.
Turn off gas to your home.
Tie a white cloth on the front of your home so that it is clearly visible (front doorknob, mailbox, etc.). This lets emergency workers know that you have left the area safely.
Lock all doors and windows.
Check with your neighbors to be sure they are aware of the evacuation order.
Listen to a local radio station in your vehicle so that you will be aware of additional information that may be given.
Keep car windows and vents closed and the air conditioner and heater off.
Follow the Evacuation Route Signs to your Reception Center. It is very important that you go to the Reception Center to register.
