What to Do Before a Hurricane

  •  Check your disaster supplies and replace or restock as needed.


  • Bring in anything that can be picked up by the wind (bicycles, lawn furniture).


  • Close windows, doors and hurricane shutters.


  • Trim any trees that touch power lines or hang over the house.


  • Make and store extra food in a water-proof container.


  • Assemble a simple first aid kit including bandages, iodine,  etc.


  • Turn the refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting and keep them closed as much as possible so that food will last longer if the power goes out.


  • Talk with members of your household and create an evacuation plan. Planning and practicing your evacuation plan minimizes confusion and fear during the event.
