Children, Elders and Pets
Your hurricane plan must addresses how you will take care of your young, elderly and disabled family as well as animals.
Create a collection of items you may need during an evacuation – packed in an easy-to-carry container such as a backpack.
Prepare Your Home
Secure items in and around your home before storm force winds arrive. Trim and remove dead branches and minimize flying debris.
Ensure you have at least one gallon of water a day, per person, for three days – half for drinking, half for food preparation and sanitation.
Flashlights are indispensable for moving around inside a dark house, but they’re less useful for general room lighting.
First Aid Kit
Hurricanes can cause injury. Prepare a first aid kit composed of different-sized bandages, antibiotic ointment, gauze pads and adhesive tape.
