Here are tips to keep you and your family safe this hurricane season.
Before the storm arrives, have a disaster kit prepared and ready, fully stocked up with non-perishable foods, bottled water, first aid kit, at least a two week supply of any prescriptions you may need as pharmacies may be closed. Also, be sure that all important documents that your family needs are in ziplock bags and with your kit. To include, but not limited to: Insurance papers, driver's licenses, car registrations, paperwork for pets, birth certificates, SS cards, pictures of property before storm damage to present to insurance agencies, etc... Don't forget flashlights, a portable radio, and plenty of batteries.
