How To Prepare for a Hurricane in 3 Steps

1. Know your evaluation route and determine where you will stay once your leave you residence in case of an impending hurricane. Know where the emergency shelters are located in your area. Pack an emergency duffle bag that include nonperishable foods, a flash light, candles, a battery powered radio, a change of clothes, bottle water, etc.

2. Create a contact list of your insurance company, local law enforcement offices, emergency shelters, FEMA, friends and relatives. Put this list in your car or in your emergency duffle bag. Exam your home and develop a plan to secure windows and doors if you are required to evacuate.

3. Keep a non-cordless telephone that does not require electric power in your residence.  Since local telephone service work on its own power supply, local telephone lines often work after hurricanes, even though the electricity is out. Also, make sure that your mobile phone is charged and that you have a charged backup battery available. Consider purchasing a backup generator to provide power to your residence in case of a power outage. Make sure you have extra gasoline stored in a safe place that can power your backup generator.
