Hurricane season begins June 1 and ends November 30 each year, but don't wait until the last minute! Now is the time to get prepared before a storm threatens our area. Here are some resources and tips to consider as you make your plan.

      Basic Preparedness Tips

      • Know where to go. If you are ordered to evacuate, know the local hurricane evacuation route(s) to take and have a plan for where you can stay. Contact your local emergency management agency for more information.
      • Put together a disaster supply kit, including a flashlight, batteries, cash, first aid supplies, and copies of your critical information if you need to evacuate
      • If you are not in an area that is advised to evacuate and you decide to stay in your home, plan for adequate supplies in case you lose power and water for several days and you are not able to leave due to flooding or blocked roads.
      • Make a family emergency communication plan.
