Hurricane Preparedness Tips
Even with peak hurricane season-ending, it’s still vital that you and your family stay prepared. Unexpected storms can still hit, but there are many ways you can be prepared for any bad weather that might come our way:
Make An Emergency Preparedness Kit
Every household, no matter where you are, should have an emergency preparedness kit. It should be packed with flashlights, batteries, water, first aid kits, and more in order to ensure that your family is ready to brace themselves for what a hurricane can bring. You’ll be glad you have it once your power goes out or if there is a bigger emergency caused.
Know If You Need To Evacuate
It’s always important before a hurricane to make note if you are in an area that is prone to extreme flooding and if you need to evacuate. Research your evacuation route and plan it ahead of time. Make sure you know their requirements, if they are pet friendly, and when the storm is going to hit so you have plenty of time.
Invest In a Generator
One of the most common issues that happens after a hurricane hits is power outages. Be prepared ahead of time with a top quality generator. There’s no telling how long it will take to get your power grid back up and running, so generators come in handy for keeping your home comfortable and keeps your food from spoiling.
