What’s Your Family’s Safety Plan?

Now that peak hurricane season is in full force, it is very important that you and your family have your hurricane safety plan arranged in case of a hurricane.

When making your family emergency plan, make sure to include two places to meet: one right outside your home, and another outside your neighborhood. Decide exactly where you would go and what route you would take to get there. You may choose to go to a hotel or motel, stay with friends or relatives in a safe location, or go to an evacuation shelter if necessary. Also, don’t forget to plan ahead for your pets. Keep a phone list of pet-friendly hotels/motels and animal shelters that are along your evacuation routes.

Practicing your emergency plan with your family is extremely helpful.  This way when a real emergency occurs your family is ready and equipped to take action.
