Get Ready…It’s Hurricane Season!
The most important thing you can do as hurricane season approaches is to get yourself, your family and your home prepared. By starting early, you’ll avoid the rush at home supply stores, grocery stores and other venues typically crowded and often chaotic when hurricane watches and warnings are issued.
Preparing Makes Sense
How Can I prepare
What Supplies Should I Have?
What should I do after a Storm?
All NOAA Weather Radio stations broadcast on one of seven frequencies in the VHF Public Service band: 162.400 megahertz (MHz), 162.425MHz, 162.450 MHz, 162.475 MHz, 162.500MHz, 162.525 MHz, and 162.550 MHz. While some older weather radio receivers will only have three frequencies (162.400, 162.475 and 162.550), and receiver sold today should be able to pick up stations on any of the seven frequencies.
Consider buying a generator
If you use a portable generator, read and follo all the manufacturers instructions. Be sure to set it up outsied – not in your home or garage – and connect appliances directly to it. Don tot ire your generator directly to your breaker or fuse box, because the power you generate may flow back into power lines and cause injuries.

Create a Family Emergency Plan
Designate a meeting place. Choose a location outside your house in case of a household emergency, such as a fire, and one outside your neighborhood in case you cannot return to your house. Make a plan now for what to do with your pets if you need to evacuate. If possible, make arrangements to stay with the friend or relative who resides closest to your home and who will not have to evacuate. If a hotel or motel is your final intended destination during an evacuation, make a reservation before you leave. Post emergency telephone numbers by your phones and make sure your children know how and when to call 911.
