Hurricane Season is upon us, running from June 1 to November 30, and of course, living in Aeries, we are particularly vulnerable if a storm were to hit. While a hurricane can happen at any time during this period, the highest probability is from the middle of August to late October. Should our area experience a hurricane, always monitor your local TV and radio stations, as well as, www.VBgov.com for the latest information or contact the Public Information Office at 385-3111.
Being prepared for an emergency is the best way to prevent a loss of life or damage to property…and those long lines at the grocery store! Below, we have provided information and links to help you be more prepared this hurricane season. Hopefully none of us will need to worry, but let’s hope for the best and be prepared for the worst.
Every Disaster Prevention Plan should include:
1. Developing a Family Plan
2. Creating a Disaster Supply Kit
3. Having a Place to Go
4. Securing your Home
5. Having a Pet Plan
