2017 Hurricane Preparedness - Being Prepared

Prepare Written Plan (Click Here)


The time to prepare for a hurricane is before the season begins, when you have the time and are not under pressure. If you wait until a hurricane is on your doorstep, the odds are that you will be under duress and will make the wrong decisions. Take the time now to write down your hurricane plan. Know where you will ride out the storm and get your supplies now. You don’t want to be standing in long lines when a Hurricane Watch is issued. Those supplies that you need will probably be sold out by the time you reach the front of the line. Being prepared, before a hurricane threatens, makes you resilient to the hurricane impacts of wind and water. It will mean the difference between your being a hurricane victim and a hurricane survivor.

There's still time before the official start of Hurricane Season 2017 in the Atlantic Basin.   We have already had our first Tropical Storm, Arlene, which formed on April 20th. Hopefully this series of articles and the resources that we've shared will assist you in keeping your family and property safe this season.   We may have an slightly below-average season forecast, but it only takes one storm....  

Our final article will take a look at what to do after the storm.  Thank you for taking this seriously.
