Topic #1 – Communications Plan

Probably one of the worst things that could happen to any of us is being separated from family members in an emergency. Compounding that would be not knowing how to reach them, and not knowing how to get reunited. We suggest the following:

  • Figure out how to reach each member (phone/radio/etc)
  • Using the attached form, create a meeting place (suggest one for on-island and one for off-island) and list contact numbers for everyone. In an emergency you may not have your phone available to you with your contact lists. Put this list in your FI Family Emergency Manual (we will be rolling it out later this year – but nothing says you cannot start a folder or manual now and keep these documents on hand!).

Action Steps:

  1. Fill out the attached form, suggest each family member have a copy.
  2. Determine both on-and off-island assembly points.
