Hurricane Season Is Upon Us
It is that time of the year again - the dreaded hurricane season. Do you know what you need to do to be prepared? Hurricanes can pose a serious threat to both your life and property. These natural disasters produce winds ranging from 74 to 200 miles per hour. A storm with that much power can cause catastrophic damage and severe flooding. If your home or business sustains high winds or heavy rain you may need to survive on your own for several days. Don’t wait until the storm hits to get your supplies together. Start now so you can stay safe.
Here’s a list of basic emergency supplies to have on hand:
- Flashlights and extra batteries
- Portable battery-operated radio and extra batteries
- First aid kit
- Emergency food and water
- Non-electric can opener
- Essential medicines and supplies
