Hurricane Preparedness Week!
This week is National Hurricane Preparedness Week. Hurricane safety is encouraged during this week in order to help prepare our communities for the start of the hurricane season. To prepare for a major storm, there are a few safety procedures all home and business owners should follow.
- Create an emergency plan. Prepare for a severe storm by outlining critical steps to follow such as an evacuation route and communication methods.
- Create an emergency kit. Supplies such as radios, flashlights, batteries and a first aid kit should be prepared and easily accessible in the event of a power outage or other substantial event. Non-perishable food and water should also be stocked.
- Ensure your property is safe and will outstand a strong storm. Have your property inspected, and make sure that the structure is up to date with the accurate building codes for your area.
- Speak with your insurance representative regarding your policy. Not all policies cover flood damage, so it is important to be aware of what you may be responsible for after a storm.
