Have a Hurricane Plan

  • If it may flood, prepare your home:
    • Shut off electricity.
    • Shut off gas.
    • Move valuables above water level.
    • Anchor fuel tanks.
  • Have an evacuation plan: make a list of emergency numbers, identify a safe place to go, and know your evacuation route.

  • Develop a Family Disaster Plan.
