As the storm approaches:  

  • Make and review an emergency family plan 

Know your escape routes and understand what each family member needs to do in case of separation, evacuation and communication with loved ones.

  • Check in with your neighbors 

Senior adults should have a plan during the emergency and may require additional assistance and supplies.

  • Those with Disabilities 

Make sure if you or anyone in your family has a disability, that you have the necessary supplies and equipment needed during an emergency.
