Tips on Being Prepared for Home Emergencies
What would you say to an opportunity to make life safer? All it requires is a little bit of common sense and planning. Our region has just come through two of the toughest hurricane seasons in many years. For many, these storm seasons caused us to evacuate further inward away from the storm.
When the Emergency Management Agency (EMA) calls for a voluntary evacuation, most of your evacuation planning should have already been completed. If you wait until EMA directs a mandatory evacuation, your plans may present many disappointments and delays. This causes you to run headlong into thousands of others, who are also trying to get away from the storm at the last minute, often struggling to find an available hotel room and working through extreme heavy volumes of traffic.
