Start of  "the season" is time to Get a Plan!

Start of hurricane season is time to prepare

June 1 means the beginning of summer for most people, but for those living in hurricane prone areas, the first day of June is the first day of "the season," and time to get a plan.

That is the message from emergency preparedness officials from the local level right up to national agencies and one way they all work to deliver this annual message is through National Hurricane Preparedness Week, a time dedicated to raising public awareness and urging every family’s preparation for weather related emergencies. This year the week, May 26-June 1, was marked by a proclamation by President Obama in which he said “This week, we reaffirm that it is never too early to prepare for this year's hurricane season... and most importantly, discussing what to do in a disaster and developing a plan that everyone knows.”

In the event of a storm emergency, the City of St. Augustine works in cooperation and in tandem with St. Johns County Department of Emergency Management to provide the most updated and specific information for its residents. 

 

      

 

The best planning begins at home, so residents and businesses are asked to familiarize themselves with the closest-to-home resources available during a storm emergency. Start by visiting and bookmarking the the web site for the St. Johns County Department of Emergency Management and the site for the Florida Division of Emergency Management. Both sites provide a vast amount of information regarding preparedness and, specific to St. Augustine and St. Johns County, instructions for evacuations including a tool to locate the closest evacuation route according to your address and the locations of shelters and those designated as pet-friendly.

One of the most important close-to-home storm duties is checking on 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. The St. Johns County Department of Emergency Management web site has forms available that may be submitted on-line printed, completed and mailed.

When making a family plan it is critical to include all family members in the process, and one fun and quite helpful way to initiate the process is to use this colorful and easy to read brochure.

Additional and very helpful resources are available through FEMA's excellent web including helpful checklists, sample lists of preparedness kits contents, and an easy to complete and share Family Communications Plan. The site is at www.ready.gov/hurricanes.
