Hurricane Emergency Plan


The National Weather Service advises following:
  • Post emergency telephone numbers by the phone.
  • Install safety features in your house, such as smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.
  • Inspect your home for potential hazards (items that can move, fall, break or catch fire) and correct them.
  • Have your family learn basic safety measures, such as CPR and first aid; how to use a fire extinguisher;
    and how and when to turn off water, gas and electricity in your home.
  • Teach children how and when to call 911 or your local Emergency Medical Services number.
  • Keep enough supplies in your home for at least 3 days. Assemble a disaster supplies kit. Store these supplies in sturdy, easy-to-carry containers, such as backpacks or duffle bags. Keep important documents in a waterproof container. Keep a smaller disaster supplies kit in the trunk of your car.

Disaster Supplies Kit Should Include:
  • A 3-day supply of water (one gallon per person, per day)
  • Food that won’t spoil
  • One change of clothing and shoes per person
  • Prescription medicines
  • One blanket or sleeping bag per person
  • First-aid kit
  • Battery-powered NWR and a portable radio
  • Emergency tools
  • Flashlight, extra batteries
  • Extra set of car keys and a credit card or cash
  • Special items for infant, elderly or disabled family members
