September - National Preparedness Month

As the hurricane season is upon us now is the time to prepare. Look over this list (from a past city press release) and do everything you can to be ready. It is not of matter of if, just when.

Follow these day-to-day tips to become prepared for unexpected emergency situations:

1. Find a backpack or duffel bag that will be your disaster supplies kit
2. Buy flashlights & batteries for every member of your family and put it in the bag
3. Choose a family member or friend out of town to be your Emergency Contact
4. Make a wallet card for everyone in your family with the contact number
5. Add other family members' and doctors' numbers to the contact cards
6. Choose a place out of the area that you and your family can go if you need to evacuate.
Remember pets!
7. Learn the difference between a watch and a warning
8. Purchase three gallons of water for everyone in your family (including pets)
9. Put a map in your car in case you must use unfamiliar roads to evacuate
10. Talk with your neighbors about emergencies. Arrange for someone to check on older or disabled residents
11. Find out if you live in a disaster prone area and what types of disasters can occur in your area and prepare for those.
12. Decide who in the family will be responsible for helping children or older adults if you need to evacuate
13. Put a first aid kit into your disaster supplies bag
14. Pack medication (and a copy of the prescription) for individual family members in your disaster
supply kit.
15. Put canned food into your disaster supplies kit
