  • Preparing For Trouble

  • 1 - BEFORE

    Before Hurricane Season starts you should:

    Assemble your Disaster Supply Kit

    - These items are often scattered around your home and simply need to be brought into one location.

    Write out your Family Disaster Plan

    - Discuss the possible hazards with your family. Determine if you are in a evacuation area. Identify an out-of-town family contact.

    ----------------------------------------

    2 - WATCH

    Check your Disaster Supply Kit

    - Make sure nothing is missing. Determine if there is anything you need to supplement your kit. Replenish your water.

    - Protective measures should be initiated, especially those actions that require extra time (for example, securing a boat or leaving a barrier island).

    ----------------------------------------

    3 - WARNING

    When a Hurricane Warning is issued

    - Ready your Disaster Supply Kit. If you need to evacuate, you should bring your supply kit with you.

    - Write out your Family Disaster Plan. Your family should be in the process of completing protective actions and deciding the safest location to be during the storm.
