Be Hurricane Ready: Key Steps to Protect Your Home and Family

The Atlantic hurricane season begins June 1 and continues through November. During this time, residents of coastal states and even those living farther inland should prepare for the possibility of high winds, heavy rainfall, storm surge, and flooding.

There are several measures you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones from danger:

  • Make emergency plans that establish evacuation routes, shelter locations, and means of communication.
  • Familiarize yourself with local resources and ways to receive alerts and warnings.
  • Put together an emergency preparedness kit that includes water, food, and supplies to last several days, such as first aid kits, flashlights, a radio, and extra batteries.
