In Case of a Hurricane


When To Evacuate:

How To Prepare For Evacuation:

  • Prepare a disaster supply kit.  Be sure to include any prescription medication you require.

  • Secure you home: turn off the gas, water, and electricity; board up windows and draw drapes across them; brace garage doors.
  • Secure any loose objects in yard; and lock all windows and doors.
  • Secure boats on a trailer near house or building and fill with water. 
  • Make arrangements for pets, most public shelters and hotels/motels do not allow animals.
  • Leave a note detailing where you plan to relocate.
  • Designate an out-of-area contact that family and friends can call to get information on your whereabouts.
  • Designate a meeting point for your family should you get separated.


Where To Evacuate:
