Hurricane Preparedness: Assemble Disaster Supplies

Beat the rush: Get your supplies now

Waiting until a hurricane has got our area in its sights is a bad time to be thinking about hurricane supplies. People panic and store shelves become empty within a few hours of the news stations proclaiming we are under a tropical storm/hurricane warning or watch. Gas stations get pumped dry and lumber for boarding up homes become scarce. Gather all these things now so you can be ready when a storm hits!
