Hurricane Season 2023…Think You're Ready?
For all but 3 years of my life, I have lived in hurricane areas…Texas and Florida. And every June, I try to remind others to be prepared!
By the way…even if you don’t live in a hurricane area, you still need to be prepared to leave or shelter at home! There are fires, snowstorms, earthquakes, floods, chemical leaks, or tornadoes that can impact your life.
Make a plan. Drop the I should do this…DO IT.
Make a list and know…
-What you would take if you had to leave
-Where you would go if you had to leave
-If you have pets, are there places that will take them
-What you need to have at home if you had to shelter in place
Gather and Back Up
Don’t wait until the last minute to gather the documents that you would need…wills, insurance papers, medical information, etc.
Back up photos to the cloud.
There’s much more to being prepared but this is a start. What you need to do may depend on where you live.
The important thing is to think about YOUR PLAN. Whether it’s an act of nature or manmade, at some point you may have to call upon that plan.
