ASSE offers hurricane safety assistance (9/15)
Go to ASSE’s web site for a variety of hurricane safety related information.
Hurricanes often produce high winds, tornadoes, large amounts of rain and power outages that can affect citizens for days after the initial storm has passed. It’s important for residents to have at least a three-day supply of water for each individual in the family, including pets, along with non-perishable food, a first aid kit, battery-powered radio, extra batteries and a flashlight.
If asked to evacuate, it is recommended that people have a "to go" bag ready and include: maps/evacuation routes; important documents such as proof residence, pictures of your family including pets, insurance policies, and tax records; comfortable clothing and blankets; and unique family needs such as prescription medications, pet supplies, infant supplies or any other unique need your family may have.
Individuals can also call 1-800-BE-READY or 1-888-SE-LISTO for more emergency preparedness information.
