Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 3-9. With hurricane season beginning on June 1, NMCP will post information and weather updates as necessary to keep you informed. Before the weather gets dangerous, here are a few things you can do to prepare your family and your household:
Make a hurricane emergency plan and share with everyone in your home. Designate someone outside the area to be a contact for your family members and share the person’s name and phone number with your family. Make sure that person knows they are the family’s emergency contact.
Put together a go bag now that includes household supplies, 1 weeks’ worth of medication, food (including a can opener), water (1 gallon per person/pet per day), clothes, disinfectant supplies, pet supplies. Keep the go bag in your trunk or where it is readily accessible.
Know your evacuation zone and evacuation route. Practice evacuating with your pets and identify where you will stay.
