...Hurricane Preparedness Week...

Today`s topic:  Complete Your Written Hurricane Plan

The time to prepare for a hurricane is before the season begins,
when you have the time and are not under pressure. If you wait until
a hurricane is on your doorstep, the odds are that you will be under
duress and will make the wrong decisions. Take the time now to write
down your hurricane plan. Know where you will ride out the storm and
get your supplies now. You dont want to be standing in long lines
when a hurricane warning is issued. Those supplies that you need
will probably be sold out by the time you reach the front of the
line. Being prepared, before a hurricane threatens, makes you
resilient to the hurricane impacts of wind and water. It will mean
the difference between your being a hurricane victim and a hurricane
survivor. For more information, visit our homepage at
