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.
