Be Prepared
Create an emergency preparedness and action plan for your family and your business.
Contact your insurance agent and determine your insurance eligibility now. Review insurance coverage for your home and business and the contents. In addition to high winds, rain and floods are sometimes associated with hurricanes and tropical storms. However, damage caused by flooding is not usually covered in regular homeowners’ insurance.
Find out more from:

• National Insurance Consumer Helpline (1-800-942-4242)
• The Insurance Information Institute (1-800-331-9146)
• The National Flood Insurance Program
Pay attention to local weather reports. Purchase a NOAA Weather Radio and sign up for The Weather Channel’s free alerts for your mobile phone or email.
• Find out if you live in a hurricane evacuation zone by contacting your local emergency management office. Make an evacuation plan if you live in an area vulnerable to storm surge or fresh water flooding.
• Identify the evacuation route you will use if told to evacuate. Determine the nearest substantial, low-rise building outside of flood zones to which you can evacuate – an official public shelter, a hotel or a friend’s or relative’s home. Find out if where you’re going will accept pets.
• Agree upon two places family members can meet if separated: one outside your home for an emergency while there, and one out of the neighborhood if you cannot return home.
• Test emergency equipment such as generators and flashlights.
• Decide where you will store your boat during a tropical storm or hurricane, and factor into your action plan the time to move it to storage.
• Assemble a hurricane survival kit. Obtain emergency supplies now to be self sufficient during the storm and its potentially lengthy aftermath. If you wait until a hurricane is on your doorstep to buy these items, they will be in very short supply or even completely unavailable.
• Compile a family emergency supplies kit. Make certain everything you need is in one specific, easy-to-access location.
