Prepare Before A Hurricane Hits…


What You Should Do

If A Hurricane Is In Your Area:

Listen to the radio or TV for

more information.


Secure your home,

close storm shutters,

and secure outdoor

objects or

bring them indoors.


Ensure a supply of water

for sanitary purposes

such as cleaning

and flushing toilets.

Fill the bathtub

and other large

containers with water.


If you are unable to

evacuate,

go to your safe room.

If you do not have one,

follow these guidelines:


Stay indoors

during the hurricane

and away from

windows and

glass doors.


Do not be fooled

if there is a lull;

it could be the eye of the storm –

winds will pick up again.


Close all interior

doors —

secure and brace

external doors.


Take refuge in a small

interior room, closet,

or hallway on the lowest level.

Lie on the floor under a table

or another sturdy object.


What if YOU

need to evacuate

an area?

  • should talk to your family about:

  • Where to meet outside your neighborhood if you must evacuate.

  • Where to call to "check in" if you become separated from your family during a disaster.

  • You should memorize the phone number of a favorite aunt or family member who lives in another state.

  • You would call there to report where you are so your family can find you.


Pleasedon’t forget

your pets…

Hurricanes, tornadoes and floods don’t just affect you -- they also affect your pets. And your pets depend on you for their safety.
