Dear Friends,

The British Virgin Islands Red Cross seeks to encourage you the members of the
territory, to be better prepared for any natural or man-made crisis and/or disasters. As
the events of Irma and Maria remain grounded in our recent history, this Family
Emergency Plan Booklet has been designed to help guide you and your family members
in making preparedness plans for your household.

❖ Use this activity booklet with your family or household members to discuss how
to prepare and respond to the types of emergencies that are most likely to
happen where you live, learn, work and play.
❖ Identify responsibilities for each member of your household and how you will
work together as a team.
❖ Practice as many elements of your plan as possible.

Once you have followed the guidance in this booklet, your Home Preparedness Plan
will support the greater community response by the BVI Red Cross, which also supports
the national response of the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) and other
key response agencies.
The British Virgin Islands Red Cross in partnership with all Government, Private Sector
and Community Based Organizations stakeholders seeks to organize and coordinate
resources of the communities across BVI so to allow for an effective response in time
of crisis.
You too can learn more about being prepared and becoming part of the British Virgin
Islands Red Cross by visiting our official website at
