ER Preparedness: Safety Checklists

 

Safety checklists are one way that you can help prevent emergencies.

These checklists should include ensuring that any safety equipment in your home is in good working order, and that any potential issues are identified early and addressed in a timely fashion. Reviewing these checklists can help you prevent fires, damage to your home as well as prevent injuries.

The American Red Cross and FEMA have created basic checklists (below) for families, and these are great resources for you to get started thinking about your safety checklists.

Be sure to include a Naloxone supply, which is critical to be on your checklist!
