Hurricane Preparedness Week 2021
Hurricane Preparedness Week starts today and we are sharing tips to help you create a plan. Here are some things you can do this week to prepare:
Day 1: Create an Emergency Plan
Start by creating an emergency plan for your family that includes emergency meeting places in your home, neighborhood, and outside your neighborhood. Create a plan here.
Day 2: Build an Emergency Kit
Build an emergency kit to have at work, in your car, and at home. This could include a backpack, water, nonperishable food, a blanket, etc. See the full list here.
Day 3: Review and Gather Documents
Look at your policies ahead of time to see what's covered and if flood insurance is available to you since it's the leading cause of damage from tropical systems. For more insurance tips visit https://bit.ly/2PupnxJ.
Day 4: Be Informed
Plan your route and have an alternate. Remember, you may not have to drive hundreds of miles to evacuate, only far enough away from the evacuation area.
Day 5: Strengthen Your Home
Trim your trees to prevent damage from snapped branches and board up your windows to protect them from flying debris. For more ways to strengthen your home click here.
