Hurricane Readiness

Posted on by Blog Administrator

You can’t stop a tropical storm or hurricane, but you can take steps now to protect yourself and your family.

If you live in coastal areas at risk, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages you to prepare for hurricane season. The Atlantic hurricane season is June 1 through November 30 each year.
Please follow these important hurricane readiness tips from CDC:

After you have read these tips, please review the other resources available on the CDC Hurricanes website.

CDC strongly recommends that you print all important resources before a hurricane strikes. Power outages during and after a hurricane can prevent you from accessing information online when you most need it. Preparing now can help keep you and your family safe.

Visit CDC’s Public Service Announcements (PSAs) and Podcasts page to learn more about how to prepare for and respond to a hurricane and other natural disasters.

    This is all good advice, and I think it is a good idea to print some of these checklists out so you can have a list of the things you need in your cupboards and your car in the event of a hurricane. That way, if you use up an item you can put a checkmark next to it to remind you to purchase it next time you are at the store.
