Hurricane Season Runs from June 1st to November 30th every year. Every family should be prepared to be self-sufficient for the first five to seven days after a major storm, so recovery efforts can focus on those who can’t help themselves.
In a major disaster, emergency workers may not be able to reach everyone right away and, in some cases, it may take three or more days for help to arrive. What would you do if you had no electricity, no water, and no telephone service? Having a plan for your family, your home, and your business needs will help ensure everyone's safety and comfort during these difficult times.
