Preparing for Hurricane Season

We’ve all watched the news about the tornadoes, floods and wildfires that have devastated various regions of our country in the past few months.  Now is the time to get ready for the next weather threat to Florida—the hurricane season. Already there is plenty of warning that an above average chance of tropical storms, hurricanes and major hurricanes is forecast by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association's Climate Prediction Center.

Usually NOAA gives about a three day warning that a hurricane is possible and that's enough time to evacuate if you've got a plan and your emergency supplies and equipment are at hand. But you need to be prepared before there is a hurricane warning.
There are three fundamental steps to becoming prepared:

An Emergency Kit includes items such as non-perishable food, water, a battery-powered or hand-cranked radio, extra flashlights and batteries. You may want to keep some items in your car in case you are told to evacuate with short notice.

A Family Emergency Plan includes how you will contact one another if you have to evacuate separately, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of an emergency.

Being prepared also means staying informed.  That is a responsibility of each member of a family.

Hurricane preparations help minimize property damage  and it definitely will save lives. For more detailed information on preparing for emergencies, what to put in your emergency kit and creating a family emergency plan, visit these government websites:
