Here at the end of Hurricane Preparedness Week, we'd like to suggest you formalize your reaction plan... think it through, write it down, consider not just hurricanes (and Cyclones and Typhoons) , but related floods, storm surge, evacuation, etc.
- Emergency Planning and Evacuation Procedures
- Assemble Disaster Supplies
- Preparedness for all Calamities – Stay Strong and Survive!
- Hurricane and Tropical Storm Watches, Warnings, Advisories and Outlooks
- El Niño Disaster Response Plan
- Make Your Emergency Plan Today
- Storm Surge – a Hurricane Drama ?
Complete your written hurricane plan:
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 warning 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.
