Hurricane Preparedness Week

5/4/2020 (Permalink)

When storms strike in Panama City, Panama City Beach, and surrounding areas, SERVPRO of Bay County is Here to Help!

Hurricane Preparedness week is May 4th – May 9th, with hurricane season officially beginning on June 1st.  Living in the Florida Panhandle, being prepared for a hurricane is of the upmost importance for the safety of you and your loved ones.  The National Weather Service offers a comprehensive web page with details on how to prepare for hurricane season, as well as hurricane safety and evacuation information.

Creating and maintaining a hurricane supply kit is one of the most frequently recommended preparedness steps you can take.  According to Ready.gov, the following supplies are recommended for your hurricane preparedness kit:

  • Water- one gallon per person, per day, for at least 3 days
  • Food- at least a 3-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Battery powered or hand crank radio
  • Flashlight
  • First Aid Kit
  • Be sure to determine beforehand the size batteries needed for your radio and flashlight(s) and have plenty available.
  • Manual Can Opener
  • Local Maps
  • Prescription Medications
  • Cash or Traveler’s Checks
  • Pencil and Paper
  • Copies of Important Documents

Depending on the specific needs of your family, a more extensive kit may be necessary, including children’s games and activities, baby food, or pet supplies.  It is recommended to keep your preparedness kit in a cool, dry location that is easily accessible, and to regularly check your supplies to make sure none have expired.

If a hurricane or other storm event causes damage to your home or business, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Bay County at 850-785-1077 for help.  We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster!
