DISASTER PREPAREDNESS

Do You Know What Hurricane WATCH
& Hurricane WARNING mean?


WATCH: Hurricane conditions are possible in the specified area of the WATCH, usually within 36 hours.

WARNING: Hurricane conditions are expected in the specified area of the WARNING, usually within 24 hours.


Prepare a Personal Evacuation Plan!


  • Identify ahead of time where you could go if you are told to evacuate.
  • Choose several places - a friend's home in another town, a motel, or a shelter.
  • Keep handy the telephone numbers of these places as well as a local road map.
  • You may need to take alternative or unfamiliar routes if major roads are closed or clogged.
  • Listen to NOAA Weather Radio or local radio or TV stations for evacuation instructions.
  • If advised to evacuate, do so immediately!


Assemble a Disaster Supplies Kit!


Be sure to include:

  • First Aid Kit and essential medications.
  • Canned food and can opener.
  • At least three gallons of water per-person.
  • Protective clothing, rainwear, bedding or sleeping bags.
  • Battery-powered radio, flashlight and extra batteries.
  • Special items for infant, elderly, or disabled family members.
  • Written instructions for how to turn off gas and water if authorities advise you to do so (remember, you'll need a professional to turn them back on).
  • Or, purchase an Emergency Preparedness Survival Kit!


Prepare for High Winds!


  • Install hurricane shutters or pre-cut 3/4" marine plywood for each window of your home.
  • Install anchors for the plywood and pre-drill holes in the plywood so that you can put it up quickly.
  • Make trees more wind resistant by removing diseased or damaged limbs, then strategically removing branches so that wind can blow through.


What To Do When a
Hurricane WATCH is Issued!


  • Listen to NOAA Weather Radio or local radio or TV stations for up-to-date storm information.
  • Prepare to bring in lawn furniture, outdoor decorations or ornaments, trash cans, hanging plants and anything else that can be picked up by the wind.
  • Prepare to cover ALL windows of your home.

    If shutters have not been installed, use pre-cut plywood as described above.
    Note: Tape does not prevent windows from breaking; taping windows is not recommended!

  • Fill your car's gas tank.
  • Re-check manufactured home tie-downs.
  • Check batteries and stock up on canned food, first aid supplies, drinking water and medications.


What To Do When a
Hurricane WARNING is Issued!



  • Listen to the advice of local officials, and leave if they tell you to do so.
  • Complete preparation activities.
  • If you are not advised to evacuate, stay indoors, away from windows.
  • Be aware, the calm "eye" is deceptive; the storm is not over.
  • The worst part of the storm will happen once the eye passes over and the winds blow from the opposite direction.
  • Trees, shrubs, buildings and other objects damaged by the first winds can be broken or destroyed by the second winds that blow from the opposite direction.
  • Be alert for tornadoes!
  • Tornadoes can be spawned by hurricanes.
  • Remain indoors, in the center of your home, in a closet or bathroom without windows.
  • Stay away from flood waters.
  • If you come upon a flooded road, turn around and go another way.
  • If waters are rising rapidly around you, get out of the car and climb to higher ground.


After a Hurricane!


  • Keep listening to NOAA Weather Radio or local radio or TV stations for instructions.
  • If you evacuated, return home when local officials tell you it is safe.
  • Inspect your home for damage. Use flashlights in the dark; avoid using candles.


PLAN & PREPARE!


Hurricanes in the United States are most threatening along the coastlines. Such fierce storms have been known to build up enough momentum to carry destructive winds inland for hundreds of miles. Heavy rains, flooding, and tornadoes add to the damage hurricanes can inflict upon home and community.
Prepare for a hurricane by completing each item on the checklist below. Then meet with family to discuss and finalize your Family Disaster Plan.

Assemble a Home Disaster Supplies Kit.

Location of Disaster Supplies Kit:

[_________________]


Call your local emergency management or planning and zoning office to find out if you live in an area that could flood during a hurricane or heavy rains.


Flood Area: YES [___] NO [___]


Prepare an Evacuation Plan.
Clear your plan with the relatives or friends you plan to stay with if you are ordered to evacuate - or plan to go to a Red Cross shelter. Add a map marked with two alternative routes to your destination to your Disaster Supplies Kit.


Evacuation Plan completed on:

[_________________](Date)


Write instructions on how to turn off gas and water if advised to do so by local authorities.


Instructions Written on: [_________________](Date)
