Discuss the type of hazards that could affect your family. Know your home's vulnerability to storm surge, flooding and wind.

Locate a safe room or the safest areas in your home for each hurricane hazard. In certain circumstances the safest areas may not be your home but within your community.

Determine escape routes from your home and places to meet. These should be measured in tens of miles rather than hundreds of miles.

Have an out-of-state friend as a family contact, so all your family members have a single point of contact.

Make a plan now for what to do with your pets if you need to evacuate.

Post emergency telephone numbers by your phones and make sure your children know how and when to call 911.

Check your insurance coverage - flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners insurance.

Stock non-perishable emergency supplies and a Disaster Supply Kit.

Use a NOAA weather radio. Remember to replace its battery every 6 months, as you do with your smoke detectors.

Have disaster supplies on hand, including:

  • Flashlight, portable battery-operated radio and extra batteries
  • First-aid kit
    Emergency food and water (including a non-electric can opener)
  • Essential medicines
  • Cash and credit cards
  • Sturdy shoes and a change of clothing
  • Copies of important papers (bank statements, insurance records, deeds, etc.)

When a Hurricane Watch or Warning is Issued:

  • Listen to hurricane progress reports.
  • Follow instructions if ordered to evacuate.
  • Check your emergency supplies.
  • Store drinking water in clean bathtubs, jugs, bottles and available cooking pots.
  • Bring in outdoor objects such as lawn furniture, toys and garden tools; anchor objects that cannot be brought inside but that could be wind-tossed.
  • Secure your home by installing hurricane shutters or precut plywood.
  • Trim dead branches from trees.
  • Turn the refrigerator and freezer to the coldest settings if not instructed by officials to turn off utilities.
  • Fuel your car. Review evacuation routes and gather your disaster supply kit.
  • Store valuables and personal papers in a waterproof container.
  • Review your family disaster plan.

Take First Aid, CPR and disaster preparedness classes.
