Prep for hurricane season

It’s that time of year again.  For people living near the coasts of the southern Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and the eastern Pacific Ocean, it’s time to review your emergency/disaster kit….It’s hurricane season.  The season runs from June 1st through November 30th.

I read on twitter from the Department of Homeland Security that 60% of Americans say preparation for disasters is important.  But only 17% claim to be very prepared.  When a storm approaches local markets are often picked over of needed supplies and have long checkout lines.

There are numerous resources out there to help you prepare and to highlight what to consider as you prepare.  FEMA’s Ready website is a great resource.  We have also published a couple of posts  here  and here that can help jog your thoughts as well.

Take the time and prepare and relax a little bit.  Build and update your kit today!
