3 Steps to Prepare for Hurricane Season
Step 1: Create a Family Disaster Plan
Identify ahead of time where you could go if told to evacuate. Choose several places: a family's home in another town, a motel, or a shelter. Keep phone numbers of these places on hand as well as maps to each location. Keep your gas tanks full during hurricane season. Make sure to include a plan for your pets.
If you will need assistance evacuating before the storm, call 2-1-1 or contact the Nassau Bay Police Dept. at 281-333-2212. Carry a list of telephone numbers that includes emergency contacts, family members, and other important numbers, such as your family doctor.
