Emergency Plan

Emergency Plan is very essential, make one with your Family, assign responsibilities to each one, Talk to Children, do not make them scared, instead educate them what to do if something goes wrong.

we are connected each other through our devices, mobile phones particularly, Try to keep family, helplines and important numbers handy always (preferably handwritten on a paper), if your mobile phone or internet doesn’t work, you should know how to communicate or contact with each other? where to gather in such cases, where to find each other, where you have to Try to find shelter? discuss all these things earlier with your family/ friends in a meeting.

If you don’t know where your govt. has assigned a place to locate you, then find some concrete windowless place like a basement to seek shelter or a middle lounge of building with several walls. always make two places as your shelter points, one in the city and one outside of it.

we are still hopeful that nothing goes wrong, no war should happen, everything can be sorted out through peaceful dialogues.

Do not forget Allah, keep reciting Ayat ul Kursi and Ayat Kareema.

May Allah Almighty save us all from the calamity of war, flood, fire, and other disasters. AMEEN
