2017 Hurricane Season Print E-mail
Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricane Season is June 1 through November 30 and we want to remind everyone of tips to help keep you and your family safe and prepared.
 
Be proactive. Have a family discussion about what you will do, where you will go and how you will communicate with each other when a storm threatens.  Also, create a disaster kit for supplies and make sure your property insurance and flood insurance are up to date. Finally, know your evacuation route and listen to local authorities as a storm approaches.
