Over the weekend, she was sharing the I’m Red Cross Ready Flickr group idea with friends and suggesting that they get in on the action with something simple — like posting a photo of their designated meeting place, a key part of any disaster plan.
They were stumped for a moment, but then realized that they live right near a local bar. Granted, in certain disasters, even going down the street might not be possible (think floods), but after a house fire, a place with good food and strong drinks might be a perfect fit.
I’m already revising my plan to identify a place that will keep me safe, warm and satiated. How about you? Is there a nearby bar or restaurant that you could use for a meeting place in case of emergency?
