In the case of a personal emergency, important information to provide to your family includes a list of medical conditions, medications, and allergies. To prepare your family for an emergency situation, it is important to assemble a 72-hour kit that includes water, food, and first-aid supplies. Additionally, you can develop a family plan for where to go and meet in case you get separated, and learn how to quickly find shelter.
