Stayers, goers and shelterers need equally to be prepared, planned, and practiced - with a plan that includes knowing how to defend safely, how to leave safely, and how to shelter safely if it’s too late to leave.
And what is more: if you leave, how to prepare your house so it can survive and be there for you to come home to.
