Preparation is Key

Preparation is key when dealing with any natural disaster. We have compiled a series of important things to know in case of an emergency.

  1. If you are asked to evacuate, PLEASE do so! If your local government believes your county or region is unsafe, please evacuate.
  2. Leash and Tag all pets. We all love our furry friends, and to reduce the chances of losing your pets during the commotion of an evacuation, ensure that they remain leashed at all times and have a current address and phone number listed on their ID Tag.
  3. DO NOT wait until the last second. Evacuation notices are given far in advance to allow the several thousand individuals to relocate time to do so. This means waiting until the last second to pack up and leave could get you stuck in traffic during a disaster.
  4. Stock up on necessities. Food, Water, and toiletries can become difficult to obtain during a disaster. Stocking up on these items beforehand can greatly improve your quality of living while things are sorted out.
  5. Obtain ALL medications and important documents. If you require any form of medication, pack an ample supply along with any governmental or legal records that may not be very easy to replace. We suggest keeping these items in a watertight container or safe.
