Hurricane Preparedness Guide


Getting Prepared

  • Check your disaster supplies and replace or restock as needed.
  • Bring in anything that can be picked up by the wind (bicycles, lawn furniture, kids and pets).
  • Close windows, doors and hurricane shutters. If you do not have hurricane shutters, close and board up all windows and doors with plywood.
  • Fill bathtub with water. You may want it to cook with or flush with it..
  • Turn the refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting and keep them closed as much as possible so that food will last longer if the power goes out.
  • Turn off propane tanks and unplug small appliances.
  • Fill your car’s gas tank.
