Hurricane prep

1.  Secure outdoor equipment as trash containers, lawn furniture, umbrellas, construction supplies.  Flying debris is the major cause of damage and injury.

 2.  Locate and check your flashlights, get additional batteries for them and emergency radios.  Do Not recommend candles as a fire hazard.

 3.  Prepare for possible long power outages.

 4.  Do not operate generators in closed areas.  Also safely store fuel sources.

 3.  Prepare for downed trees and wires.  

 4.  Employees, residents, and volunteers develop family disaster plans, NOW!

 5.  Do not call 911 unless there is an emergency
