4 Steps For Successful Hurricane Preparedness
Hurricane Season started June 1st, are you prepared?
Follow these 4 Steps for successful Hurricane Preparedness.
- Start putting together a disaster supply kit now. Get a medium-sized plastic container to keep everything dry and together. Include a flashlight (or few), extra batteries, cash, first aid supplies, water, portable chargers (fully charged), extra pair of contacts (if needed) and copies of your critical information if you need to evacuate. You might also want to throw a roll or two of toilet paper in your disaster supply kit (trust me on this one). An extra gas can (full, of course) won’t hurt either.
- Create an evacuation plan.
- Stock up on supplies. Make sure your portable generator is working, and you have plenty of gas on-hand. Have a one-week supply of non-perishable food and water for each person. Don’t forget to get those prescriptions filled, also. If you have infants, stock up on diapers, wipes and formula.
- Prepare your home. Have the proper plywood, steel or aluminum panels to board up the windows and doors.
