Make a plan today by discussing the following questions with your family, friends or household:

How will I receive emergency alerts and warnings?

What is my shelter plan, including how to care for pets?

What is my evacuation route?

What is my family/household communication plan?

Do I need to update my emergency preparedness kit?

Think about what items to include in your preparedness kit:

  • Food
  • Water
  • Protective clothing
  • Medications
  • Batteries
  • Flashlights
  • Important documents
  • Paper money
  • Full tank of gasoline

If you plan to evacuate when a storm comes. Consider the following:

If you are unable to evacuate:

  • Remain inside the most secure building and stay away from windows.

The best time to prepare for a hurricane is before hurricane season starts on June 1st. Put your plan together now and be ready before the season begins.
