With the Atlantic Hurricane Season quickly approaching, June 1st-November 30th, now is the time for Indian River County residents to make or review Hurricane Checklists and Evacuation Plans. Below is a short list of items you may want to include while preparing:
- Water (1 gallon per person/pet per day, plan for 3 days)
- Medications (2 week supply)
- First Aid Kit
- Battery Operated Radio
- Flashlight / Lantern
- Non-perishable food
- Coolers for Food and Ice
- Propane for Gas Grills
- Fill Vehicle Gas Tanks & Cans
- If you have a Generator, check it to make sure it is in working order before a storm approaches.
- Pet Supplies (food, meds)
Have a plan in place with family members as to where you will go in the event you are ordered to evacuate for a storm. This is particularly important since cellular communication immediately after a hurricane is limited to first responders/emergency services and landlines are often not working in the affected areas. If you plan to evacuate to a shelter and have pets or special needs, be sure to make these arrangements well ahead of time as shelters for these services may have limited capacity.
Get cash ahead of time. ATM’s will likely be down as power may be out for days and/or businesses closed. Credit/Debit cards won’t work for the same reasons.
For insurance purposes, take interior... Read More
