Hurricane Preparedness Essentials

Hurricane Preparedness Essentials

Hurricane preparedness essentials involve your escape plan, first aid kit and survival kit. Hurricanes can cause havoc and danger to your family, property and pets. Being prepared for an incoming storm or hurricane is important to survive the calamity. Listen to your local news station for updates when there is an incoming hurricane. Prepare in advance; make sure you have everything you need to survive the hurricane. Prepare and double check your first aid kit, survival kit, and have extra clothing that’s enough for several days. Stack canned goods, drinking water, battery operated radio, flashlights and blankets.

Tune in to your local area radio or TV stations for the latest information and updates. If evacuation is needed prepare to evacuate quickly and know your routes and destinations. Make sure that you have the needed medicines and medical supplies needed. During a hurricane it is safer that you stay indoors, stay away from beaches, river banks and flood waters. Use flashlights instead if candles when power go out and continue listening to your local radio and TV stations for updates. Turn off power and water mains if instructed by local authorities to avoid accidents. Avoid contact with floodwater. Floodwater may be contaminated with sewage or dangerous insects or animals.

When a storm or hurricane happens and you’re outdoors find a place that can cover and protect you. Don’t walk, swim or drive through floodwaters. If you are caught on a flooded road get out of your car and move to higher ground. Keep away from river banks and beaches. Stay away from underpasses, dips, low spots and areas that are subject to flooding. You and your family’s safety is the priority when calamity happens. Always be vigilant on what’s happening around you and take actions when necessary.
