What to Know if You’re Separated from Your Family in a Disaster

Here are three key things to keep in mind after a storm, fire or other emergency.

Disasters can strike anywhere, any time — and your family may not be in the same place at the same time. That’s why it’s important to have a reconnection plan.

A reconnection plan is a process for finding your family. It can help reduce stress and worries before, during and after a disaster. Your plan should cover three essential components:

  1. Be informed.

    Before a disaster, make sure your entire family is as informed as possible. For adults, this means signing up for emergency alerts and knowing which local sources provide the best emergency information. It’s also a good idea to understand your workplace’s evacuation plan and policies, as well as those of your child’s school or day care.

    Explain to your kids the types of disasters possible in your area and how your family would reconnect after each. Knowing this information can help your children know how to respond in an emergency.

  2. Make a plan.

    Identify two designated meeting spots: one near your home and one elsewhere in case your home is unreachable. Both locations should be specific — for example, the edge of your driveway or the front steps of your kids’ school.

    After you’ve chosen the locations, plan and practice a route for each family member. How will you get to your meeting spot from your workplace? How would your child get there?

  3. Designate an emergency contact.

    Choose an emergency contact person for your family — one who lives out of town in case service in your area is disrupted. Make sure everyone in your family has the phone number and email address of the contact. Each family member should check in with this person after a disaster.

    A reconnection plan is only one part of your family’s complete emergency preparedness. For more, review MetLife’s complete disaster preparation guide.
