The Atlantic Hurricane season runs June 1 to November 30, but having a plan is beneficial year-round. By assembling a disaster supply kit and creating a family plan before a storm forms, you’ll be ready in any emergency.
Use this checklist to assemble supplies before hurricanes occur, don’t forget supplies for various locations like home, work, and car.
Make sure you address specific household needs, set up a family meeting place, and determine an emergency contact. It’s impossible to know where your family will be when disaster strikes, so it’s important to conduct a drill at least once a year to keep everyone ready for the real thing.
Make sure to secure a safe location for your pet and create a disaster kit with pet supplies in case of an evacuation. Make arrangements ahead of time to avoid last-minute surprises and confusion.
