Hurricane Preparedness: Get a Disaster Plan

Being prepared for a tropical storm or hurricane will help with the stress of preparing for a hurricane.

You never know where and what you will be doing when that tropical storm warning comes about. You could be coming back from vacation, a business trip or out of town altogether.

Ask these 4 questions of your employees and family members to start putting together your disaster plan:

How will you receive emergency alerts and warnings?

  • Do you have a weather radio? If not, now is the time to get one.
  • Have you subscribed to Weather Emergency Alerts from your local news? 

What is your shelter plan?

  • Identify safe places in your home to weather the storm. Make sure your safe place is:
    • Area with no windows or doors
    • Stocked with emergency supplies
    • Access to food & water

What is Your Evacuation Route?

  • Leave early enough to not be caught in traffic
  • If you cannot leave sooner, think about the best ways to get out of Vero Beach that will be the least congested
  • Develop a plan in case you get seperated from your family members
  • Keep extra gas at your home so you are ready to leave without being stuck at the gas pumps
  • Put an emergency kit in your car
  • Have a plan to evacuate family members that are disabled

What is your communication plan?
