    Lightning Safety

    The National Fire Protection Agency states that, “Lightning-related fires are more common in June through August and in the late afternoon and evening. Peak seasons for lightning-related fires vary by region, as do weather patterns in general.”

    Keep yourself and your family safe by knowing what to do.

  • Hurricane Preparedness

    Everyone needs to be prepared for the potential of a land falling hurricane or tropical storm and being prepared for any emergency requires planning.  Damage from a storm could be due to winds, heavy rain, or tornadoes.  If you are able to stay at home, electricity, water, heat, air conditioning, telephone service and transportation could be disrupted or lost for some time.  Emergency management planners suggest having food, water, medications and other essentials on hand to last your family for three to five days.

    You should always refer to your local media for any pertinent information as it relates to possible evacuations, closings, and the opening of shelters.
