MAKE A PLAN

Where will you go? What evacuation route will you take? What supplies, medications, and documents will you need? It's important to sort all of these details out well before a storm approaches.

Create a plan for you, your family and your business.

 

BUILD A KIT

Your kit should contain enough food, water and medications to support yourself and your family for at least 3 days. If you have pets, include supplies for their needs as well.
