Hurricane season begins 1 June. The advice is to prepare, plan and be informed. Prepare an emergency supply kit, make a family emergency plan and be informed about different types of emergencies.
Everyone should have basic supplies on hand in order to survive at least 3 days if an emergency occurs. In your go kit in case you need to evacuate. The go kit should include important documents, cash or travellers cheques, a 10 day supply of medication, emergency phone numbers and video/photos of belongings.
The cost of being prepared is nothing compared to the cost of life.
