Evacuate immediately if told:

• Listen to your battery-powered radio and follow the instructions of local emergency officials.

• Wear protective clothing and sturdy shoes.

• Take your Disaster Supplies Kit.

• Lock your home.

• Use travel routes specified by local authorities. Don’t use shortcuts, because certain areas may be impassable or dangerous.

If you’re sure you have time:

• Shut off water and gas before leaving, if instructed to do so.

• Post a note telling others when you left and where you are going.

• Make arrangements for your pets.
