WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF A HURRICANE

Have a Plan

Everyone in your family should know what the plan is in case of a hurricane. You will need to agree on a place to meet in case you are all separated, and you should know if you are staying home, leaving town, or going to an emergency shelter. By discussing the plan ahead of time, Contender Claims Consultants notes that you will take some of the initial panic out of the equation when a hurricane is looming.

Have Vital Supplies On Hand

You don’t need to be a survivalist in order to be prepared in case a hurricane hits, power is lost, and there is no way to buy food and water. Having a few weeks of dried food and water is the best way to be prepared. Also, you should have a first-aid kit and a kit of emergency supplies, which should include batteries, flashlights, garbage bags, a whistle, a compass, a mirror, a basic tool kit, a can opener, cutlery, and more. Any medications should be stockpiled as well. When word reaches Naples that a hurricane is coming to town, these will be the first items to disappear off store shelves, so get yours today.

Fill Your Gas Tanks

You’ve probably seen stories on the news about the gas lines and shortages after a hurricane hits. Prevent this by keeping your gas tanks full. Having extra gas on-hand in gas cans is a great idea as well.

Buy a Generator

While generators are not cheap, they can be life saving in the event of an emergency. They can provide vital power you need to run space heaters, cook food, and provide basic power for showers, water pumps, and more. You will need to have extra gas for your generator as well.
