Preparing for a Hurricane

Hurricane

For the East Coast, hurricane season lasts from June to November. Be sure you and your family are prepared for the 2104 hurricane season by following these tips:

  • Build an emergency kit that includes enough food and water to last for at least 72 hours. In addition your kit should also include a battery-powered radio, flashlight with extra batteries and a first aid kit.
  • Identify a contact such as a friend or relative who lives out-of-state for household members to notify they are safe.
  • Learn hurricane evacuation routes for your area. Figure out how you would get there if you needed to evacuate.
