First of all your family members mean the world to you. When an impending hurricane is threatening their safety it is imperative that you have a solid hurricane family plan in place. It is helpful to keep a physical copy of the plan – every step, location, and supply needed. Hence your family members can review it every few months and keep it fresh in their minds. Here are the things that your family should know ahead of time:
Preparation ResponsibilitiesFirst sure everyone in your family knows which tasks they are responsible for when preparing for a hurricane. Second be sure they know how to complete these tasks safely, efficiently, and thoroughly. Information about the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season . Hurricane Preparedness Kit List
