If you haven’t already, now is the time to prepare your hurricane kit, or if you already have one, make sure to add COVID related items including masks, hand sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes. For a complete listing of everything you need in your kit visit https://www.ready.gov/kit.
It’s also time to prepare a family emergency plan and decide on a meeting place if you get separated. Your family may not be together during or after a hurricane, so you need to know how you’ll contact one another and reconnect if separated. To download and print a family emergency plan click here.
