Experts suggest residents call their relatives to stay updated on their evacuation plans and become one of their emergency contacts should disaster strike. Assisting family members with information that is not readily available to them during a storm can be of immediate value.

“If you have relatives in a nursing home or in a hospital located in an evacuation zone, stay current with the facility’s hurricane protocol,” said Lisa Garcia, national coordinator from Get Ready, America! The National Hurricane Survival Initiative. “It’s important to know how to contact your relatives in these facilities during and after a storm.”

Remember to stay updated with the latest weather reports provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. For additional information and checklists, be sure to visit http://www.hurricanesafety.org.

“Get Ready, America!” – The National Hurricane Survival Initiative – now in it’s 16th year, is the nation’s most comprehensive disaster preparedness public education initiative.
