Hurricane Preparedness

Our highest priority is the safety and well-being of our families and community. Hurricane season (June 1- November 30) is upon us. Many weather agencies indicate that 2021 will be a highly active hurricane season. When a hurricane warning is issued, people run to stores. Get ahead of the rush by following these hurricane readiness tips.

  • Prepare a hurricane kit and keep non-perishable food items. A three-day supply of drinking water, food that you do not have to refrigerate or cook, manual can opener, personal hygiene and sanitation items. One week of baby supplies if applicable. First-aid supplies, a portable NOAA weather radio, prescription drugs, flashlights, battery operated fans, extra batteries, keep your car filled with gas, and a list of important phone numbers on paper in case your cell phone is not handy.
  • Plan for your pets. Pets need food and water too, plan your evacuation with your pets in mind.
  • Take an inventory of your personal property and important documents. Take pictures, review your insurance policies, and protect your documents and cash in a safe waterproof place or container just in case you need to evacuate.
  • Take steps to protect your home. Bring in everything from your balconies before a storm. If you are away or plan to be away from your home, please leave your balcony clear as these items can become dangerous projectile objects and ruin your property and potentially harm someone. If you are not in town, please contact a trusted family or friend to assist in gathering these items safely into your home.
  • Update chapter roster with contact information for wellness checks before and after a disaster.
  • Check on Delta DEARS or Sorors with physical challenges to provide assistance with Hurricane Preparedness if needed.
