Hurricane Season -- How to Prepare Your Home

It's never too early to start preparations.

Prepare Your Home:

  • Trim overhanging branches and shrubs
  • Pre-cut 5/8-inch plywood for your windows if you do not have shutters
  • Show each family member how to turn off water, gas and electricity and discuss when it's appropriate to do so
  • Eliminate fire hazards and secure objects that could cause injury in your home during a disaster
  • If in a mobile home, check tie downs
  • Prepare Disaster Supply Kit

In the event of a disaster, please check for important updates and phone numbers that will help you plan for your medical care in the event of an evacuation or disaster.
