Time to Prep for Hurricane Season

It’s not too early to start thinking about the 2007 hurricane season which is now just days away. Raising public awareness and urging every family’s preparation is the goal of National Hurricane Preparedness Week slated for May 20-26.

In recognizing National Hurricane Preparedness Week, President Bush called upon communities to “share information about hurricane preparedness and response to help save lives and protect communities.”

Plan now to spend part of that week with your family planning for the hurricane season “what ifs.”

Start by visiting the EOC, the Emergency Operations Center, for both the State of Florida and for St. Johns County. Both have information that will be very helpful as you develop your own plan for disaster preparedness.

Shopping Tax-Free is Part of Getting Ready

On April 30, Governor Crist signed into law House Bill 211 establishing a sales tax holiday from June 1 through June 12, 2007, for hurricane preparedness items. The tax holiday is expected to save Floridians about $25 million as they use the first 12 days of the hurricane season to restock and update their supplies.

Supplies on the tax free list:  flashlights and other portable, self-powered light sources, portable radios, two-way radios and weather-band radios, most batteries — $30 or less (AAA, AA, C and D cell, and 6 and 9 volt batteries), non-electrical food storage coolers, portable generators, and some storm shutter devices. For more information on the 2007 Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday or to find information on building a customized family or business disaster plan, please visit www.floridadisaster.org.

Checking on the Neighbors

If you have a friend or neighbor or perhaps a family member who may need assistance if evacuation is required, make sure they have completed an evacuation assistance request form with the St. Johns County Department of Emergency Management. If the form has been previously submitted and the information is still correct, a new one is not necessary. The form is available at  www.sjcemergencymanagement.org
