The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th. It’s important to prepare your home and family for the hurricane season in advance which means having all of your supplies and a plan in place. Having a plan and knowing what you will do in the event that a hurricane actually comes your way will make it much less stressful if you have prepared for it in advance.
As we know, being prepared before the threat of a hurricane is of the utmost importance. Waiting until the threat of a hurricane is present is not only stressful but it can also create the problem of not being able to get the supplies you need due to the high influx of the demand for these supplies. Making a checklist of the items you will need from food, water, batteries, etc. will help with your preparation. Having an area of your home to keep hurricane supplies stocked up will help with this as you will have everything in one place and be able to mark the items you need on your checklist.
Make sure your hurricane preparedness plan includes an evacuation plan in the event that you are asked to evacuate your home or area. Know ahead of time where you would evacuate to and if you are going to evacuate to a local shelter make sure you know where the shelters are and what they may require you to bring with you. If you have animals make sure you find a shelter that allows animals and what the rules are. Whatever your plan is during a hurricane, making sure you and your family are well prepared in advance will relieve any unnecessary stress during an already stressful situation.
